Towers Warrenton Women’s Counseling Center letter

Dear Ms. Kelley,

I am writing to request consideration for the Editing position posted on I currently work from home as a Virtual Assistant for a magician and am seeking additional part-time employment. I have an extensive background in writing and editing and as a mother of a young daughter, I feel more strongly than ever about the importance of women’s issues.

My combination of writing, editing, and proofing experiences make me uniquely qualified for the Editing position. My interest in writing and editing began when I served as a journalist for several small town newspapers. Years later, the knowledge of AP style that I gained while news writing continued to come in handy as I edited the first grade curriculum for Anne Arundel County Public Schools. Today I continue to write and edit content for marketing materials for corporate magician Alexander Great. As you can imagine considering the diversity of my experience, I am flexible and will gladly edit your materials according the style most appropriate for your readers.

Finally, I am well-informed about women’s issues and women’s rights and consider the work that you do to improve the lives of women absolutely critical. I find it most appropriate, by the way, that I am applying for your Editing position today because, if you weren’t already aware, September 14 is Margaret Sanger’s birthday.

I would be happy to further discuss my qualifications for the Editing position with you personally at your convenience. Please contact me to arrange an interview or to ask any questions. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Laura M. Towers
