Please join us in giving a warm welcome to our Featured Client, Ken Haas! As a poet, Ken has a unique narrative ability; that is to say, he is not only a master of verse, but also of storytelling. He can transport the reader to colonial India, 1950s Atlantic City, or a contemporary American apartment building—introducing him/her to a vibrant cast of characters along the way—all in under a page. Appropriately, his work has appeared in such prestigious publications as Schuylkill Valley Journal Of The Arts, as well as in anthologies like The Place That Inhabits Us (Sixteen Rivers Press, 2010). We are proud to have him as a Writer’s Relief client! (Watch his short video.)

In Ken Haas’s Own Words

Though I love, love, love to write poems, I find the “business of poetry,” i.e., the process of sending my work out for publication, singularly enervating. There’s just nothing fun about it, from the cover letters to navigating the motley crew of requirements, to divining which journals are looking for what and when, to addressing the envelopes and licking the stamps. Writer’s Relief has liberated me from all of this administrivia and increased the time I have to write by an order of magnitude. Plus, they do their work with class, and my acceptance rate has grown significantly while I’ve had them on my team. They get it!

“Getting that first poem published was the hardest threshold to cross. My team at Writer’s Relief kept encouraging me…then came the acceptance! We celebrated…then I continued writing, and Writer’s Relief continued doing the wonderful work they do!”

—King Grossman, Writer
