Suffering from submission fatigue?
Writer’s Relief is happy to be here on Virtual Writers today to tell you a little bit about how our system helps creative writers make better, more professional, more efficient submissions to literary agents and editors.
The Beginning of Writer’s Relief
Writer’s Relief was born in 1994 when a friend asked Ronnie L. Smith to manage her poetry submissions for her. Since then, we’ve been helping poets and short prose writers successfully submit their works for publication in literary journals. We’ve also been helping novelists, memoirists, and other book authors connect with literary agents so they can get their books published at major presses.
How We Work
We can handle as much or as little of the submission process as our clients like. Some clients want us to do everything—from proofreading and formatting, to researching the best-suited literary agents or editors, to putting submissions in the mail (or submitting online), to tracking editorial feedback from readers.
Other clients just want our expert targeting; we do the research and provide a handpicked list of the best markets for a given work.
Either way, writers pay a flat fee for this ultra-specialized secretarial and consulting service. Visit our website to learn more about our various services, and find the one that will solve your submission woes.
What Can Writers Get For Free?
Writer’s Relief offers many, many freebies on our website. These are just a few of the free writers resources that can improve your submission strategy:
- Free Publishing Tool Kit
- Free Tutorials For Online Submissions
- Free Subscription to the hot publishing leads and tips in Submit Write Now! (30,000+ writers currently subscribe)
Writer’s Relief has been helping creative writers make better, more effective submissions since 1994—and we’re still going strong.
Thanks so much to Virtual Writers for hosting us today!
