Cover Letter or Cover Sheet

Katy R - July 10, 2015 writes:


I have switched from non fiction to fiction and am about to send off my first short story submission to a magazine after some really encouraging feedback from my tutor.
I have re-read the module about sending manuscripts, but can't seem to distinguish if I should include a Manuscript Cover page as well as a Cover Letter?

Any advice would be much appreciated asap so that I can get this sent off :-) Many thanks in advance!

A short cover letter about yourself and your story is usually enough if sending it via online submission.

Annemarie Munro Writers Bureau's Student of the Year 2022

"I have seen my writing journey as an adventure: What can I write? What am I best at? What new aspects of writing can I discover and contribute towards? I have welcomed the wide range of modules covering different types of writing, challenging me to try new aspects in style and content, pushing me gently outside my comfort zone with encouragement.

"I signed up for the course in December 2020 as a Christmas present to myself and I started the first module in January 2021. I have had eight pieces published: three paid earning £1080 and a star letter where I won a £250 hotel voucher."
