Letter of Introduction

(Aim for 300 words)

This letter has two purposes–for me to get to know a little about you and for me to see your writing. The expression here should be informal in tone, but still show your understanding of writing conventions. (Sentence variety, paragraphing, etc.). Future journal assignments will have a scoring rubric attached, but for this first one, as long as you have addressed the assignment fully, you will get full credit.

Use the questions below to generate content, but don’t simply answer them–integrate the answers into your letter. And feel free and encouraged to add anything else about yourself!
