In 2018, the world lost a number of wonderful, talented writers. Together with the entire literary community, we here at Writer’s Relief mourn the loss of these gifted individuals and remember their contributions to the literary community. This tribute does not include every great writer who left us in the past year, so in the comment section below, please share the names of any other noteworthy authors you’d like to remember.

    Hey what about the wonderful
    Poet Tony Hoagland who died this fall. His poems were funny and wise and startling.
