online finds 5/24: writer's relief

Writer's Relief: a "relieving" resource for writers!
It was no more than three years ago that I first came across the Writer's Relief website. I was a graduate student in a Creative Writing program, always on the lookout for submission tips and publishing leads. When I came across Writer's Relief, I knew I had found a keeper!

about writer's relief

According to their "About Us" page, Writer's Relief (established in 1994) was started "to help creative writers make well-targeted, professional submissions to literary agents and editors."

Writer's Relief shares this info on the name of their organization:
We are called Writer's Relief---as opposed to Writers' Relief---because we believe in emphasizing close relationships with each and every one of our Full Service clients. A one-size-fits-all approach will not work for writers who need precision targeting and personalized attention to detail.

Writer's Relief offers not only a great personalized Full Service and A La Carte submission assistance program* ... They also provide free helpful articles on their blog, video tutorials, free leads and tips, a free publishing tool kit (when you sign up for their free newsletter), calls for submissions, and more. They are definitely a resource to consider if you're looking for writing and submission guidance!
