We Help You Submit Your Creative Writing
Writer’s Relief was started in 1994 to help creative writers make well-targeted, professional submissions to literary agents and editors. We are not a literary agency, publisher, publicist, self-publisher, or marketing company.

Writer’s Relief Staff And Office
Just for kicks, here’s a slide show of the Writer’s Relief staff at work (and at play) in our New Jersey office. Yes, you’re welcome to laugh. If you want to connect with us, check us out on Facebook or Twitter!
Each Writer’s Relief staffer brings a special talent to the company. Some are currently or have been involved in publishing.
We all have one thing in common: we enjoy helping writers accomplish their goals. We’re writers, researchers, motivators, organizers, proofreaders, and savvy submission strategists.
The Story of Our Apostrophe (for all you grammar nerds)
Writer’s Relief started in 1994 when a friend of President Ronnie L. Smith asked for help submitting her poetry. Ronnie developed and implemented a successful submission strategy on her friend’s behalf. Writer’s Relief was born simply because one friend needed help from another, and although the business and client list have grown considerably, we continue to have close, personal relationships with all of our clients today.
We are called Writer’s Relief—as opposed to Writers’ Relief—because we believe in emphasizing close relationships with each and every one of our Full Service clients. A one-size-fits-all approach will not work for writers who need precision targeting and personalized attention to detail.
We Keep You Organized and Save You Time
At Writer’s Relief we have a database of thousands of journals, magazines, and literary agents who will read your work. Because we have received editors’ and agents’ comments from our clients since 1994, our knowledge of literary markets is detailed yet vast. You’ll benefit from our thousands of hours of research—saving you precious time!
We have a writers service for every budget!
