Here’s what he has to say about Writer’s Relief:
“For me, Writer’s Relief is a crucial part of the writing process—the creative process. Trying to publish requires making myself terribly vulnerable, but it also touches on my deepest intentionality because the moment I contact Writer’s Relief with a new piece of work—that’s the moment the individual solitary act of writing based on my own inner necessity becomes a shared communal object of offering based on a desire to connect with others.
Something else: jobs, family, life. We all need to live to write, but if we’re so busy living, then how do we find time to write? The answer is Writer’s Relief. I have never even met Ronnie and her staff, but, put simply, I am grateful for them every single day.”
