Finalizing the Letter. Edit and Review: Once you are finished with writing the letter, try to look for errors. Check for spellings, punctuations, grammatical errors. Don’t Staple the Letter: Use a paperclip on the top of the left corner if there are many pages. Use of staple doesn’t look nice for a business letter. Posting of the Letter: Always use clear and correct spelling for mentioning the name and address of the recipient.
I can’t tell you how many truly awful letters I’ve had to read in my life. As a former administrative assistant, I was responsible for all the unsolicited submissions to a major New York museum. Artists and collectors all over the country (and abroad) wrote to have their work considered for display or acquisition, and to be honest the decision frequently rested more on the quality of their cover letter than on their work _ which, romantic dreams aside, rarely if ever sells itself.
