Meet our featured client, Yvonne Leach! This year, Writer’s Relief celebrates twenty-five years of helping writers get their work published—and we are proud and delighted that Yvonne has been with us for fifteen of these twenty-five years!

Yvonne is the author of Another Autumn (WordTech Editions, 2014), and her poems have been published in South Dakota Review, South Carolina Review, Spoon River Poetry Review, Cimarron Review, Wisconsin Review, and more. Watch Yvonne’s video and read on to see why she and Writer’s Relief have had such a long and successful relationship.

In Yvonne Leach’s Own Words

It’s not an unfamiliar story. Like other writers, there I was balancing a more than full-time career for twenty-five years, raising a family, and trying to stay committed to my writing. I did carve out the time to write—often at 9:00 or 10:00 at night after the kids were asleep—but I was frustrated that I wasn’t getting the poems out for consideration. In 2003, I learned about Writer’s Relief and haven’t looked back. They helped me get my individual poems out into the world, which led to the publication of my first book in 2014. I am now producing poems at a steady pace that’s matched with a publication rate I feel very good about. The staff at Writer’s Relief has been there with me every step of the way. I truly value this partnership.

More About Yvonne Leach

After earning a Master of Fine Arts from Eastern Washington University, Yvonne Higgins Leach spent decades balancing a career in communications and public relations, raising a family, and pursuing her love of writing poetry. Now a full-time poet, she dedicates her time to reading as many poetry books and anthologies as she can, participating in open mics, retreats and workshops, and working diligently on her second volume. She is expanding her work to include the many political and socioeconomic challenges of our day, including poems that open in gratitude for the natural world and at the same time ache for what humankind is doing to destroy it. She splits her time living on Vashon Island and in Spokane, Washington.
