From Writer's Relief:

After years and years of watching our client list receive hundreds of acceptances per cycle, the staff of Writer's Relief finally understands what it's like to be, like... totally sick of all those positive responses from journals and agents. Who wants to get published anyway, right?

So if you loathe seeing your work in print and enjoy making paper castles out of all those form rejections, read on. We'll tell you the quickest ways to make sure you'll never have to look at an acceptance letter again!

Not buying this? Understandable. If so, you may want to check out our article: New Writers: 10 Tips To Turn Rejections Into Acceptances.

Remember, there may come a day when you might actually want to get published -- there are only so many papier-mâché figurines you can make out of form rejections anyway. When that day comes, call us! Writer's Relief knows a thing or two about creating targeted submissions and letters that can get your work published the right way.

They don’t need a synopsis or cover letter—and if they don’t feel like looking you up in the phone book, that’s their problem, not yours.
