I suspect that if you are reading this, you are exploring the question of whether Writer’s Relief is a service you could use. I wanted to explain why—for me—the answer has been a big yes.
Why? Over the past few years, Writer’s Relief has allowed me to evaluate my workload and schedule my time more effectively. The “every other month” deadline has increased my productivity while also providing me with the professional editing services and targeted submission plans that have led to more publications.
The range of expertise offered by the staff has helped me place works in fiction, flash fiction, and poetry, and I’m grateful for the publication opportunities. In addition, Writer’s Relief’s structure and record keeping have meant that, for me, a “no” is no longer a rejection—it’s the next opportunity for publication.
So do submit your work for consideration and speak to the staff about your needs. I’m dyslexic, but with Writer’s Relief’s help, I am now more confident because I am sending work out that has been professionally formatted and proofed. That has been a big weight off my mind. The staff is terrific, patient, professional, and passionate about good writing.
Good luck with your writing journey, and should you decide to work with Writer’s Relief, rest assured that you have picked a wonderful team of professionals to help you on your way.
