I'm Alan King, a writer living in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. I have a chapbook Transfer that I hope you will consider reviewing. Writing samples are available at http://myspace.com/alanking81 and http://myspace.com/bustransfer.

If after reading the samples you are interested in reviewing Transfer, please provide a mailing address for me to send a copy.

Thank you in advance. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Until then,
