News Story Weekly

346 Howard Avenue

White River, NH

Dear Ms. Richards,

I am a journalist and an avid reader of News Story Weekly. It has long been my dream to write for your magazine. I graduated from National University a year ago with a degree in journalism. For the past six months I have been working as an investigative reporter for the Bluefield Daily, my hometown newspaper. This newspaper is disseminated throughout the state. I work on assignments involving local politics.

In my opinion, News Story Weekly is the top news magazine in the country. It has had a great impact on my life. I started reading it at an early age, and it inspired me to pursue a career as a reporter. If there is a position available for a reporter at News Story Weekly, I would be interested in applying for it. I believe that my educational background and work experience qualify me for such a position. I am enclosing several of my articles that appeared in the Bluefield Daily as writing samples. I have letters of reference available if you need them.

I look forward to hearing from you.
