She is the national co-chair of GLAAD and serves on the Board of Trustees of the Kinsey Institute. Jennifer is a contributing opinion writer for the New York Times. A teacher at Colby College, she lives in Maine with her wife Deirdre, her two sons, and two black Labradors.

Just a typical day at the Little, Brown offices, with the publicity assistants working hard to get a mailing out.
Writer’s Relief has helped hundreds of writers submit their poetry to literary journals and magazines, and as those of you who regularly read our Newsflash for Writers know, we’re pleased to share our techniques with you. If you’ve been hoping to publish your poems by submitting poetry to literary magazines, here’s a step-by-step guide to help you get your poems to editors to increase your chances of getting an acceptance letter.
Submitting a book online to literary agents, or submitting poetry, stories, and prose online to editors, poses great potential for error. Today’s creative writer needs to know how to make successful online submissions. If you’re submitting essays, poetry, and short stories, you can submit your writing directly to an editor at a literary magazine using an online submission form, also known as a submission manager. If you’re submitting a novel to a publisher or a literary agent, you may opt to send a query letter by email (an e-query) rather than by regular mail.
Taking advantage of technology is smart. Unfortunately, writers often make mistakes when submitting online, which can result in their work not being considered for publication.
Avoid these common mistakes when using online submission forms (submission managers).
