Poetry submissions can be frustrating, confusing, and time-consuming. Many poets, like Lynn Hoggard, struggle with making poetry submissions to literary journals. That's why they turn to Writer's Relief (http://www.writersrelief.com). The poets with Writer's Relief would rather be writing poetry than researching literary journals, putting together poetry cover letters, and making submissions to the editors who will most likely enjoy their poems.

Poetry submissions take up a lot of a writer's time. They also require a lot of emotional energy: The process of putting together a poetry submission is not as simple as, say, filling out a form at the DMV. Poetry submissions are deeply personal. When a poet gets a rejection letter from a literary journal, he or she can experience a range of reactions—from frustration to determination to despair. There is a lot of emotion tied up in poetry submissions.

Writer's Relief takes away the emotional element of preparing a poetry submission. We also save our clients a lot of time, allowing them to spend more of their energy on writing poems than on sending them out via mail or email. We do not offer a one-size-fits-all approach to poetry submissions; when we prepare a submission packet for a client, our suggestions are targeted with pinpoint accuracy and personalization.

But Writer's Relief is not for every poet. In order to work with Writer's Relief, a poet's writing must be strong and appropriate for submission to literary journals. We want to ensure that the poetry submissions that originate with Writer's Relief are top-shelf. Poets who are interested in working with Writer's Relief must first submit their poetry to our Review Board for consideration.

Many clients of Writer's Relief, like Lynn Hoggard, have worked as professors, teachers, and instructors of poetry. Busy teachers often need help making their poetry submissions to literary journals. And retired teachers would rather be writing poetry than submitting it. Writer's Relief has been a trusted name in the publishing industry since 1994.

If you would like help with your poetry submissions, consider contacting Writer's Relief. All inquiries are free and confidential. It's not easy to be a poet, and that's why we're here to help. We love working with writers and we would love to speak with you about your poetry submissions!
