Dear Mr./Ms. Last _____,

I found the posting for a freelance writer and am very interested in the position.

One of my jobs in my current position is writing the company newsletter. I write feature articles as well as important articles about benefits, safety, and teamwork. The newsletter is distributed in hard copy to employees at the company but is also sent via email to various other constituents as a communication tool.

In writing the newsletter, I have had to do research and make contacts with a variety of individuals, from health care providers to OSHA representatives. It has been extremely satisfying and rewarding.

I am not new to freelance writing and have accumulated a varied portfolio of articles, a few of which I have sent along with my resume. Additional information can be found at the following website - URL. Back issues of all of the newsletters can be found there.

I hope to hear from you soon, and would be delighted to come in for an interview.
