Sample Cover Letter: Tips for Writing a Cover Letter Template

Sample Cover Letter: Tips for Writing a Cover Letter Template

Above is a good sample to use, even if you are sending material to a publisher.

From One of My Honor Societies

I have belonged to Phi Bet Kappa since College; don't agree with them on everything, but their latest newsletter has some interesting things in it:

State of the Arts & Sciences: April 2015 
More Coverage Starts to Bloom 
CNN host Fareed Zakaria’s new book, In Defense of a Liberal Education, has generated positive coverage of the liberal arts and sciences in the popular media this spring. Highlights include ABC’s “This Week,” the Washington Post’sWhat the Liberal in Liberal Arts Actually Means,” The New York Times' “Starving for Wisdom,” and The Daily Beast’sDoes College Have a Future After All?

How does Zakaria’s case for the value of liberal education compare with our Arts & Sciences Are Key Toolkit? Share your thoughts here.
The Art & Science of Freedom

As lawmakers across the country debate the purpose of higher education, it is worth noting that Frederick Douglass (article by E. Thomas Finan) and Martin Luther King Jr. (article by Scott Newstok, ΦBK member and Past President of Rhodes College’s Gamma Chapter) had clear thoughts about the value of the liberal arts and sciences.
Reflections by Douglass and King serve as powerful reminders for today’s educators, students, and policymakers about the continued importance of a well-rounded education.

Make a Difference This Month: Poetry and Astronomy  
Stars  and Quote from Sarah Williams poem
April is National Poetry Month and Global Astronomy Month. Show your support for the arts and sciences by taking part in activities all month long.
For example, tweet a poem to your legislators on April 30 using the hashtag #pocketpoem to call attention to the importance of humanities funding. Watch and share this video to help celebrate and promote astronomy.

Key Notes
An Excellent Adventure
On April 2, Phi Beta Kappa honored the University of Miami's Office of Civic & Community Engagement with our Key of Excellence Award in Coconut Grove, Florida. Check out key moments from the event here.

An Apologia for Countess Erzebet Bathory: Brief Review of "Wolf Hall."

An Apologia for Countess Erzebet Bathory: Brief Review of "Wolf Hall.": Personally, I have not read either of the books the series is based on, but I will say the acting is very good, as are the costumes, and rea...

More interesting reading, Kimberly Craft's Letters of Erzebet Bathory.  Too bad we don't have many letters left of Anne Boleyn; most were destroyed, and Anne was left out of Ives' History of England, 1543.  The only Anne Boleyn named was her Aunt.

Photo is from Lady Antonia Fraser, Dolls, doll belonging to Alica Boleyn, Anne's niece.
