Enclosed please find my submission, "A Shiny Goldfish for Peter," a fictional short story of 4,976 words, along with the reading fee of $15.
Thank you for your consideration. I have been a fan of XYZ Publication since I first picked up an issue at a Barnes and Noble in Minneapolis, MN, all the way back in 1992. It has inspired me to write stories with a feminist lens, and to present radical interpretations of femininity and gender expression. "A Shiny Goldfish for Peter" incorporates my research for my doctoral thesis on Gloria Steinem's life work.
Below is my 50-word bio statement. Thank you, and thank you for all the great work you do for the literary community.
