Don’t Mess with Writers, We’ll Describe You

Maxine Mawhinney will be joined by writers Jenny Knight and Preti Taneja and literary agent Julia Kingsford to swap tales of their worst setbacks, whether rejection letters (received or sent), harsh reviews or misfires. Every panellist has stories. Some may even have old scores to settle.

Share your own #rejectionstories on social media using this hashtag and tagging Primadonna. We’ll read out some and the best—or, to be more precise, the worst—wins its recipient a spot on the panel plus two tickets to Primadonna.
