Dear Dr. Delagrange:
I am writing to you to consider my interests in an internship for the Professional Writing Program.  As we discussed in your office, I would like to apply to help out with the English department internship. I am in my senior year at Ohio State University, and I would like to obtain employment that will enhance my skills to become a productive writer and further enhance my skills to become an extraordinary education provider. My intended graduation date will be Dec 2013 with a Bachelor of Art degree in English Pre-education and a minor in Professional writing.
Through my course work I have acquired and still am acquiring skills that will make me a suitable candidate. Through my classes at Ohio State University  I am learning to push my skills farther. Outside of the classroom I have been a strong advocate for the Access to Higher Education Program now titled Progressive Connections. I served on the CAB Committee for a quarter. I have helped plan fundraisers for the Oasis Club, a club for mentally challenged individuals. I am currently helping to get the English Club back on track with regular meetings. At this time not only am I enhancing my writing abilities, I am learning the tutoring side of writing to also help me to achieve improved writing skills.
During my time here at Ohio State University, I have mainly worked with fiction and creative non-fiction. I have found it quite exciting to use my imagination creatively, and I would like to be able to channel that creativity into writing professionally as well.
I would like to discuss with you further an internship opportunity. I can be reached at 567-241-3438 or by email at I will call you next week or I can discuss with you in person any questions you might have. Thank you for considering me.
