Established in 1994, Writer’s Relief is an author submission service that supports creative writers by helping them make successful submissions to literary agents and editors. Writer’s Relief maintains a database of thousands of literary magazine editors and literary agents who are actively seeking submissions from writers of many levels.
Writer’s Relief began when the company’s president, Ronnie L. Smith, was asked by a friend for assistance with a poetry submission. Smith implemented a successful submission strategy, and the company evolved from there. Since then, Writer’s Relief has helped scores of writers get their work noticed and published.
Writer’s Relief offers an array of services that cater to the needs of each writer. Their Full Service—which offers a comprehensive submission strategy that includes cover and query letter writing, personalized market research, guidelines, a personal submission strategist, response tracking, and much more—is available to writers by invitation only. See the website for details. A La Carte and A La Carte Plus services are also available to writers who are not ready for the intensive submission assistance of the Full Service.
In addition to their fee-based packages, the Writer’s Relief website offers tons of free information, such as hot publishing leads, lists of writing contests, video tutorials, blog articles, classified ads, and more.
Many of the clients at Writer’s Relief are nominated annually for literary awards such as the Pushcart Prize and the Best New American series. Current clients come from all backgrounds; they are stay-at-home parents, teachers and professors, professional authors, retirees, college students, and more. Writers are welcome at any stage in their careers, provided that their writing is strong.
