How Writers' Wings Helps YOU Get Published


You've finished your short story or poem or essay and now you want to find a good home for it. But the process of getting it out into the world can be difficult and emotionally charged. My job is to take that off of your mind so you can use your precious time writing!

I will do all of the following for you:
  •     Research the marketplace to find the best fit for your work
  •     Proofread & format to meet submission requirements
  •     Monitor upcoming contests and calls for submissions
  •     Submit your work on-line or by snail mail submission per guidelines
  •     Track submission progress and follow-up
  •     Maintain detailed records of submissions and responses
  •     Let you know when your work has been accepted (my favorite part!)
