Meet one of our most unique featured clients, Carol Everett-Adams—the ultimate Disney fan!

Her poems have been published in Avalon Literary Review, California Quarterly, Euphony, FRiGG, and Ghost City Review, among others.
Read on and watch the video to hear how the research experts at Writer’s Relief were able to find the right journals for Carol’s distinctive poetry themes and help her get published.
In Carol’s Own Words
I am living proof that you can be—should be!—your own wonderful oddball self when you write. Your authentic work will find a home. For example, Disney inhabits my psyche in weird ways, and much of my poetry explores a lifetime obsession with the parks and movies. The way I explain it to myself is that I have Disney issues, and much of my poetry ends up refracted through that prism.
Writer’s Relief has always supported and encouraged my work, and they gave me the traction I needed to launch myself as a published poet. I can’t imagine where I’d be now without my strategy team’s belief in me, their diligence, and their access to information about journals that I would never have had time to dig through myself. And the proofreading is astounding! If you’re serious about your writing, I urge you to make room in your budget to hire Writer’s Relief. For me, their service has ended up being priceless.
