Creative writing classes and degrees are okay, but please don't tell me you've had any of that before I read your short story or novel. Then all I'm thinking is, "Oh, I see what you did there." Personally, if you absolutely feel the need to recommend yourself, I am more responsive to "I read a lot." When it shows, it's a good thing.
