Beach Reading for and by men only

Submit to: Esquire. David Granger, Editor. 300 W. 57th Street, New York, NY 10019
Theme: Beach Reading. ONLY male writers. Type: Short stories, essays, and articles (5,000 words MAX).

She wondered what that could be: beach reading for and by men only, and if Esquire would be able to tell if she sent them a story, (she pretending to be a he, a Bob perhaps) and if so, how? What phrase would give her away? What would she say that he would never even think, and esp. not write?

If you don't give them long paragraphs foaming with self-pity, they'll know you're a woman.

Whenever I see something like this, I want to get a fake mustache and try to infiltrate.
