  3. Hello, my name is Jarrett Fulton. I am a new, emerging writer who specialized in the short creative writing. I just want to make sure the email is up to date and if you are still accepting email submissions at this time. (The literary market can get pretty hectic and things may change at a moment notice, so bear with me.) Other than that, I hope to hear from you soon, so that I can submit my manuscript to you.

    Have a blessed day.
