Writer's Relief client Mary Bess Dunn was nominated for The Pushcart Prize, one of the highest honors a creative writer can receive. The Pushcart Prize -- Best of the Small Presses is a yearly anthology put out by Pushcart Press(http://www.pushcartprize.com/). Each year, editors of literary journals are invited to nominate a small handful of authors that they published. We at Writer's Relief are so proud of Mary Bess Dunn!
After three years of working with Writer's Relief's submission strategists, Mary Bess Dunn has a 100% acceptance rate AND a Pushcart Prize nomination. We're honored that we've been able to play a part in her successful submission strategy!
Writer's Relief (http://www.WritersRelief.com) is an author's submission service; we manage the submission process for creative writers who submit to either literary agents (books) or literary journals and magazines (poems, stories, essays).
Many Writer's Relief clients have Pushcart Prize nominations, as well as other top honors in the publishing industry. Clients have ranged from bestselling authors to promising unknowns. What all of Writer's Relief clients have in common is strong writing skills.
Writer's Relief cannot accept every creative writer who submits work. Writer's Relief keeps its client list small to ensure that every writer receives personal attention. Tailoring a unique submission strategy for each client is why Writer's Relief clients are so often nominated for awards like The Pushcart Prize.
Interested writers are invited to submit their best writing for consideration at Writer's Relief. The Review Board posts regular calls for submissions in its free e-publication, Submit Write Now! Consideration is free and confidential, with no obligations.
Writer's Relief researches markets for each individual submitted work, formats to industry standards, proofreads, creates cover letters and query letters, tracks responses, offers support when authors have questions about submissions, and much more. Writer's Relief tackles as much or as little of the submission process as you need. The goal is to give writers more time to write.
So how can YOU receive a Pushcart Prize nomination? It's simple: Submit regularly and get your work published regularly. By increasing your publications in literary journals, you increase your odds of being nominated for the Pushcart Prize.
