Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to apply for Research Paper’s freelance academic writing position, as advertised on the web. I have an MFA in English from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, a M.Ed from the University of Las Vegas, Nevada, and I am confident that my professional background as a writer, as well as my diverse publishing history, make me an ideal candidate for this position.
In recent years, I have been able to apply my writing skills towards a wide range of freelance and editorial positions. Prior to my graduate studies, I worked as an Editorial Assistant for Buckle Down Publishing, a publishing house responsible for a vast line of state test preparation materials. I gained experience not only writing for their state testing materials as well as business communications, but I was also able to conduct research, fact check material, and successfully communicate within the various departments, including mathematics, language arts, and production, all under a rigorous publishing schedule.
I also have experience as a technical writer. Within the University of Texas at Houston’s Chemistry Department, I was responsible for compiling information and research in order to write and copy edit articles that would go on to be published in journals nationwide.
My freelance experience includes writing for such online and print magazines as World Trade Magazine, where my articles on areas ranging from supply management to green packaging within the electronics industry have been published this year.
I also write fiction. My short stories have been recently published in The Blue Mesa Review, Midway Journal, and Stumble Magazine. My work has received several awards in fiction and is currently nominated for a Pushcart Prize as well as inclusion in Best American Short Stories.
I look forward to further discussing freelance opportunities at your writing agency. I can be reached by phone anytime, or by email. In the meantime, I have attached my resume, which includes my publication history. Let me know if I can provide further information. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you. For references you may contact support at CustomPapers.com
