Recently an anonymous “angel” got in touch with our office to give the gift of 25 submissions to a promising writer who could use a little help. Though we cannot publish the name of the donor, the recipient wanted the opportunity to say thanks. You’ll find his letter below.
To My Unknown Benefactor:
Thank you for your end-of-year kindness in bestowing a Writers Relief “scholarship” on me. The last few months have been very trying due to employment/financial difficulties and subsequently my being forced to relocate to a different country to find work. As a result, I was forced to suspend any active attempt to find homes for my poems. Your generosity has enabled me to continue in that endeavor and, more importantly, was a very unexpected demonstration of human kindness from a stranger.
May you be well rewarded in this world and beyond for your selflessnesss.
If you or anyone you know would like to give the gift of submissions (anonymously or not) don’t hesitate to call our office.
