A covering letter to be used with submissions
|Well, this is my first attempt at writing a cover letter to go along with a short story I want to submit to an online magazine. Wish me luck!
24th June 2012
I have recently completed a short story of the horror genre titled "Cursed". I have enclosed the 1000 word story for publishing consideration.
"Cursed" is a short story about a woman who meets another in a public bathroom, getting more than she bargained for a curse is placed on her when she dismisses the woman's concerns and does not take the baby as she is asked.
