It all depends on how much the company wants the TW. It's like anything else in
short supply - the more the company wants it, the more they're willing to pay
and the more they're willing to do to get it. In the current economy, in some
parts of the country companies will gladly pay for relocation for a qualified
senior writer. In other parts there is sufficient supply that companies won't
pay for relocation.

Your experience with the recruiter was probably not all that common - it's not
just writers who change their minds after being relocated and that's a risk any
agency takes.
