Dear Ms. Reynolds

Submitted for your consideration is “Blackheath Elf.” a short story.’ ‘Hello Magazine‘ is a publication that values topical informative work that also entertains; elements I hope you will enjoy in this story.

I have studied creative writing with groups and also at Continuing Education Workshops where my fiction has been well received.

Thank you for your consideration.

I hope to hear from you.
