Here is my cover letter!
To The Creative Nonfiction Foundation:
My name is Brea Davenport and I am a Junior studying English at Duke University. This semester I had the pleasure of taking a course in writing creative nonfiction. In this class I wrote a piece called Blinded By The Light From The Land Of The Rising Sun. It is a humorous story about my personal relationship with Japanese culture that I think would be a good piece for your journal.
I noticed that your publication takes pieces that are written by authors who have a story to tell. These stores range from general observations to personal stories from the past. All of them are informative, interesting, insightful, and told with a very distinct voice. I feel that my piece would fit well with the type of story that you are looking for. It is a thoughtful reflection on how this culture that was not mine by birth became such a large part of my life and how it has evolved over time.
I would really appreciate you reading my piece. I am completely open to talking with you about my piece for further revisions or anything you deem necessary. I have attached this piece to this email through pdf file. I am available via the following:
