@Zasz, a better starting point may be to draft such a letter and ask for feedback, specifically addressing areas you feel are not satisfactory.

comment What are jobs that prefer or require MFAs in Creative Writing?
That makes sense. I know the huge pile of submissions most journals get, and if they scan for MFA in the cover letter, they can avoid reviewing the others as closely. A shame, though.

Can you clarify? What are your chances to do what exactly? What do want to write?
