"Submit to literary magazines!" That's the rallying cry of professional and well-known writers everywhere. But it's easier said than done! Just ask poet Alison Hicks, who has published in many literary magazines and who is the daughter of a literary journal editor. Hicks knew she needed to submit her poetry to literary magazines to get it published, but her busy schedule and family responsibilities made it difficult to prepare her submissions as often as she knew she should. She wanted to submit to literary magazines, but just couldn't get there on her own.

To submit to literary magazines, a writer must have a strong body of work and plenty of free time to research submission guidelines and editor preferences. Then, he or she must create a system for keeping submissions on track, spend hours doing frustrating tasks like filling out online forms or affixing postage stamps, addressing letters and envelopes, and much more. Most writers we know—whether they're working on a short story, poem, essay, or other nonfiction piece—want to submit to literary magazines. But they would rather be writing than doing all that paperwork!

That's where Writer's Relief (http://www.WritersRelief.com) comes in. We help creative writers submit to literary magazines and literary journals. We are highly recommended in the writing community and have been helping writers submit to literary magazines since 1994.

As a specialized secretarial service, we work with poetry, short fiction, and creative nonfiction/personal essays. Our clients have ranged from bestsellers to promising unknowns. We do not work on commission; our work is based on flat rates.

Poet Alison Hicks came to us hoping to publish her individual poems so that she might be able to find a publisher for her collection of poems—and with the help of Writer's Relief, she reached that goal!

Clients of Writer's Relief must have strong writing. For that reason, potential clients must submit writing samples for consideration to the Writer's Relief Review Board. If our readers feel the writing is appropriate to submit to literary magazines, we will send a letter of acceptance.

We also help writers of books submit to literary agents so that they can see their manuscripts published by major publishing houses.
