Doug Sovern wanted to submit to literary magazines but didn’t have the time. He started out by submitting his short stories to a few literary magazines that he’d already heard of, including The New Yorker, Ploughshares, Granta, and The Atlantic. But with all the demands of career and family—including newborn twins—he could not find the time to submit to literary magazines for publication. That’s where Writer’s Relief came in (http://www.writersrelief.com).
Doug Sovern came to Writer’s Relief seeking submission assistance; he wanted the Writer’s Relief team to help him submit to literary magazines and get published. Within one year, Doug Sovern had eight short stories accepted for publication in literary magazines. He had also been nominated for The Pushcart Prize and a number of other anthologies. Writer’s Relief helped him submit to literary magazines that he had never heard of but that had turned out to be a perfect fit for his writing.
Writer’s Relief helps writers of short stories, poems, and personal essays submit to literary magazines. Writer’s Relief also helps novelists, memoirists, and other book authors submit to literary agencies for representation.

To submit to literary magazines, a writer must have a broad knowledge of the literary magazine markets. There are many kinds of literary magazines and it can take a long time to sort through them all when deciding where to submit. Also, writers who submit to literary magazines must be sure that their submissions are formatted and perfectly proofread. Finally, writers must have a good command of publishing industry etiquette for making submissions.
Busy writers who want help submitting to literary magazines can contact the Writer’s Relief Review Board. All potential clients must submit a writing sample prior to signing up with Writer’s Relief. About 80% of writers are turned away.
