The Introductory Letter The introductory letter is a reflection. That means that it’s informal, and it’s supposed to show what you have been thinking about as you worked on this project. Give the reader a glimpse into what’s been going on in your head! Each person’s introductory letter will be different. I haven’t asked for a minimum amount of writing because I don’t know what you have to say or what you’ve been thinking about. All I can do is offer a list of things that you might want to talk about, and you’ll have to figure it out from there. Some things you might want to talk about: Why did you choose your subject? Are you still happy with your choice? What did you learn about writing a multigenre paper? What did you learn about your subject? Are there things you wish you had done differently? Are you particularly proud of some part of your paper? If you had another week to work on it, what would you do? What should the reader know before they begin your paper? What did you do to try to achieve unity? Your letters aren’t going to be like mine, because you’re not me. However, I know it helps to see examples, so I’ve attached two letters I wrote for projects at EMU. The first one is for a very unsatisfying multigenre project that never quite came together (yes, it was my fault). The second is for a multigenre project and portfolio that I am still really proud of. Clearly the second letter shows more growth on my part than the first. I had a lot to say because I learned a lot from that project.
