To the Editors: My name is Terrence Dunn. I enclose a short story for your consideration, entitled "As the waves make towards the pebbl'd shore." I am not young, but I am undiscovered. I've been writing for quite a while, although fame and fortune have eluded me. I published short stories early in the 2000's. One story, "A Tornado of Birds," was nominated for a Pushcart Prize in 2002. I have been writing novels since. One novel, "Out Beyond the Verrazano," was published in 2012. I have turned back to short fiction because of recent events in my life. I wanted to tell this story. I hope you will consider it. Terrence Dunn 917-513-0159
