    I have written a book on beauty and faces. I would like to meet with you and go over the manuscript. Could you please set up a time so we can meet and discuss the book?

    Hello, I’m Aurora van Roon. I just recently graduated university in English literature and am curious as to if you have any positions available for a person like me.
    I have loved reading ever since I could pick up a book, and could think of nothing better in this world than helping to create more. It is incredible that even in a world where books can be downloaded and found online, publication houses still exist. I think there is something magical about the written word and when it is actually a physical copy it creates a moment in someone’s life.
    Anyways, I hope I have expressed my thoughts clearly, albeit quite sentimentally. I am extremely passionate about publishing and hope to try to find work in the area but have no clue where to start. I have had professional jobs before and so I wouldn’t be completely aimless, but I also am an extremely quick learner so if I would have to learn I would be more than capable. If you don’t have any positions available, I was wondering if you could give me any advice on the industry or how to find a position.
    I also highly respect your company as it has done many interesting and creative works in the past. I appreciate your dedication to Canadian works and giving new artists a place to express themselves, as well as publishing established authors.
    Thank you very much for reading, and continue the good work.
