Summer Submissions To Literary Agents And Editors - Writer's Relief Blog

Does this sound familiar?

Summer comes, and suddenly it gets a little harder to get excited about making submissions, to say “no” to that barbecue invitation in favor of butt-in-chair time at your writing desk.

It’s a classic case of the ant and the grasshopper (with the grasshopper lounging around all summer long, and the ant being busy as a bee).

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.

 John Lubbock

Our friend Mr. Lubbock makes a great point: Summer’s a fantastic time for R & R. Sometimes, rest can rejuvenate the imagination.

But if you’re career-minded, summer is also a great time to keep your submissions on track.

The Writer’s Relief Review Board is OPEN! (Deadline: TODAY! JUNE 12TH)

image

Writer’s Relief is an author’s submission service (not a literary agency, publisher, or publicity firm). We help creative writers get published by targeting their poems, essays, short stories, and books to the best-suited literary agents or editors of literary journals.

We can help you get published. We will:

  • Identify the best literary agents for your book manuscript. Literary agents are key to publishing your novel, memoir, or nonfiction book.
  • Identify the best literary journals for your poetry, short story, or personal essay.
  • Create your cover or query letters.
  • Proofread and format your submissions.
  • Develop strategies that get literary agents and editors excited about your writing.
  • Make more time for you to write without sacrificing the quality and efficiency of your submissions.
  • Help you get published more often in reputable markets.
