In Dana’s Own Words
Sometimes it can be difficult to find the time to write. As a poet, submitting individual poems to multiple journals is time consuming and labor intensive, but having Writer’s Relief handle my submissions frees me to write. Even when I am busy doing other things, Writer’s Relief is working to get my poems out there.
One of the biggest challenges of being a writer is to remain motivated in the face of rejections. However, Writer’s Relief has helped me to get a steady stream of acceptances so that my confidence and motivation remain high. The dedicated staff at Writer’s Relief is extremely helpful and always responds to my inquiries in a timely manner. They are readily available by phone and e-mail, and I feel they genuinely care about me.
