Below is the confirmation letter of my online submission to The Louisville Review, a literary magazine from my hometown in KY.
There was a space for me to comment on my online submission in the form, and thus, I sent The Louisville Review the following letter:
To The Louisville Review,
My name is Janet Li and I am currently a junior at Duke University. I spent my elementary through high school years growing up in Louisville, Kentucky.
I took a creative nonfiction course this past semester. Skyscrapers and Rice Paddies is a product of my work in that course. The piece focuses on my travels to Shanghai and a southwestern village in China and how it has shaped my view of nature and technology, and city and country. When I traveled to both places, I had constantly compared the city and village in China to my past experiences in Louisville and thus I felt it was appropriate to send this piece to the Louisville Review.
Piece that was submitted: Skyscrapers and Rice Paddies
