Sample Internship Inquiry Letter

Dear Ms. Smith,

I write to introduce myself and to tell you how much I admire Coral Springs Magazine.  Currently an English major at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, I have developed strong writing and editing skills through my coursework and school activities in both high school and college.  Magazine publishing is my chosen career direction, and south Florida is the wonderful place I call home.  By any chance could you use a reliable and efficient intern this summer?  I would be honored to work on your team because, frankly, Coral Springs Magazine is such a first-class product!  Can we discuss the possibilities, even if you haven't hired an intern in the past?  I will call you next week to explore your interest.

Sincerely,

Your Name
