Poetry journals are the best places to submit your poems for publication if you’re hoping to build a name for yourself as a writer and share your words with the world. But trying to find the right poetry journal for your work can be difficult, frustrating, and time-consuming. That’s where Writer’s Relief http://www.WritersRelief.com comes in!
Writer’s Relief has a database of thousands of poetry journals; our database is regularly maintained and updated, so we have the most up-to-date information on the specific details for literary journal submission guidelines. We’ve been helping our clients successfully submit their poetry to literary journals since 1994.
Just ask Perie Longo, a client of Writer’s Relief who has been writing poetry for a long time. Perie was once told by poet William Stafford that the important thing was to get her poems “out there”—and that meant submitting them to poetry journals for consideration and publication. Now Perie is a well-published poet, with many literary journal publication credits to her name, thanks in part to the efforts of her Writer’s Relief team of submission strategists.
If you would like Writer’s Relief to identify and target the poetry journals that are best-suited to your unique style, voice, and concerns, we would love to connect with you. However, we can work only with strong writers, so interested poets should submit to our Review Board for consideration.
The Writer’s Relief client list is small because we are not a one-size-fits-all submission service; we offer personalized, caring service tailored to each individual poet seeking literary journal publication. Writer’s Relief also works with books (novels, memoirs, and nonfiction books), as well as short prose (stories and creative nonfiction essays). Contact us to see if we are working with poetry collections.
Whether you’re widely published or have never been published in a poetry journal before, you may be a good candidate to take advantage of the Writer’s Relief extensive poetry magazine database. Our clients have ranged from established best sellers to promising unknowns. Our rates are based on flat fees.
Even if you’re not ready to be a Writer’s Relief client, there are many ways you can take advantage of the free writers resources on our website. We regularly feature poetry journals as part of our Literary Magazine Spotlight series on our blog. Also, find calls for poetry submissions in our Writers Classifieds.
The literary journal market may seem daunting; some writers even lose hope and believe that they’ll never see their work published in a literary magazine. But when Writer’s Relief manages the submission process, clients report that they have a renewed sense of optimism and focus—and that can lead to better writing, better submissions, and more acceptance letters from poetry journals.
