Poet

Thanks to Writer’s Relief, my poetry has been introduced to a wider audience. In the six years that I have been associated with Ronnie and her fabulous staff, I have had over 50 acceptances.

Searching on one’s own for an agent can feel like an endless undertaking. Now that I am working with Writer’s Relief, I feel new momentum and certainty that I am finally moving in the right direction. The staff has helped me organize my approach by tightening my presentation and aiming for the most appropriate agents. In addition, at their suggestion, I successfully published three pieces of the book in literary journals as stand-alone stories, so I am more convinced than ever that this book will be published.

Short Story Writer

Once I began using Writer’s Relief, I began to get published immediately. I realized later that—as in every hero’s journey—on the road to getting published, I needed a guide and mentor. The work that Writer’s Relief does is based on many years in the field. They know the journals, understand the kind of work they accept, and they remind you that rejection is part of the game, and that it takes more than a few faceplants to make a writing hero.
