Dear Andrew DeBenedictis:

I have been an avid reader of
Lullwater Review for years.  Your publication is a constant source of
inspiration.  It is chiefly for this reason I am submitting my poetry for consideration to
Lullwater Review.  I
have enclosed five of my most recent, unpublished poems: “Butterfly Dancing,” “Full Circle,” “Tetrad of
Sonnets One: Passion,” “Tetrad of Sonnets Two: Hands” “The Murder of Ravens,” and “Wild Orchid.”

Born in Puerto Rico, I moved to New York City with my family when I was a child.  I grew up in the South
Bronx, one of eleven children.  I received a B.A. in Health Care Administration and Management while in
the United States Air Force, and later a B.S. in Pharmacy.  Pharmacy is my profession but poetry is my

Thank you so much for your time.  You need not return my work, but I do look forward to hearing from you.  
As such, I have included a stamped, self-addressed envelope for your response.
