Submission Guidelines for Full Service Clients

Writers wishing to benefit from the Full Service submission assistance program that we offer at Writer’s Relief must first apply to our Review Board. Now is a great time to kick-start your submission strategy and start seeing the results you want. We can help you get your work to the best-suited agents and editors in the best format possible.

There is no reading fee for our Review Board.

NOTE: Our FULL SERVICE clients enjoy our most comprehensive service, with lots of personal attention and our highest success rate; therefore, Full Service clients are invited only upon approval by the Review Board. A LA CARTE clients prefer a more do-it-yourself approach to working with us in order to keep costs down; therefore, A La Carte clients do not need to apply to the Review Board.

Wouldn’t it be amazing to get your submissions in the mail to all the best publishers and agents? Writer’s Relief has successfully helped writers beat the procrastinator in them since 1994. We help clients find the time to write.

Keep in mind that we must turn away 80 percent of the work that comes to us. However, if your writing is strong, don’t let procrastination, hesitation, lack of marketing experience, or fear stop you from submitting your work. We can help you make effective submissions. Send your writing for consideration today!


For online submissions: Visit http://www.WritersRelief.com/submission-guidelines-for-review-board.aspx.  Use our simple online form to get your work to us quickly. This is our preferred method.

Regular Mail Submissions: To apply, mail us your COMPLETE contact information (mailing address, phone number, e-mail), biographical information, a list of publishing credits, and a few words regarding what you would like us to accomplish for you. Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope for our reply. If you would like your work returned, be sure your SASE is the right size, with the right amount of postage. MAIL SAMPLE PAGES ACCORDING TO GENRE: Poetry (10-12 poems); Short prose (three stories or essays); Novels (a synopsis and the FIRST 25 pages); Nonfiction books (proposal and sample pages as needed, up to 30 pages total).  

If you are accepted into our FULL SERVICE client list:

We propose, prepare, and proof content for cover letters. (You’ll benefit from what we’ve learned since 1994.) We review and target your work to specific markets based on content, length, reading dates, etc. (You’ll never again have to spend hours researching markets for your work.)

We proof and prepare your work to industry standards, prepare master copies, and maintain electronic and hard copy versions of the work here at Writer’s Relief, Inc. (If your computer crashes, we’ll have a master copy of every title on file.)

We prepare 25 – 30 submissions for each title (or group of poems) within each two-month cycle. (When was the last time you accomplished this?)

We print your individually addressed cover/query letters. (You don’t have to create merge files, etc.)

We track every submission. (You’ll know what’s going on with every submission without doing any filing.)

We offer guidance regarding submissions, acceptances, etc. (Each client is assigned two personal submission strategists.)

If you’ve been putting off getting your work to our Review Board, now’s the time to send it to us. Writers who submit their work regularly and extensively increase their odds of acceptance…dramatically. Act now to get your submissions into the world ASAP!

Writers have been looking to us for years to help them alleviate the countless hours needed to research ever-changing writers’ markets. We continue to have the most current and best writers’ markets included in our database. Because our database is updated daily from information we receive from all of our clients, as well as thousands of journals and agents directly, our lists are more up-to-date than any market book or online source.

We want to be your partner in the submission process. Call us toll-free (between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Eastern Time) if you have any questions. One of our personal submission strategists will be happy to spend a few minutes with you on the telephone.

You can e-mail your questions to info@wrelief.com.
