Rowling shares rejection letters received for a novel written under a different name
- Written by arounddb, 27 March 2016
J.K. Rowling posted online the rejection letters she received when submitting a novel written under a pen name.
The editorial team of a publishing company (who did not know they were dealing with the world's most successful writer) rejected J.K. Rowling's novel (under the pseudonym of Robert Galbraith) stating that the book could never be commercially successful.
They went on saying that " a writer's group/writing course may help her" to improve her writing skills!
And this is not an April's fool story!
These are the two rejection letters she received.
