It can be very rewarding to publish personal essays—just ask Emily Eddins, whose collection of personal essays, Altitude Adjustment, was just released. Thanks to the help of Writer’s Relief (http://www.writersrelief.com), a number of the personal essays published in Altitude Adjustment were previously published in reputable literary journals.

Writer’s Relief client Emily Eddins found success by regularly submitting her personal essays to literary journals.
