Writing a business letter
This section contains many of the course material we have designed for our own editing center classes. The tasks differ, and different lecturers want different things from the collegiate authors. Therefore, the advise here may or may not be applicable to your typing condition. After all, hand-outs can only give a small part of the personalized instruction that an individually tailored meeting with a write center teacher can have.
Please make an appointement with a Writing Center trainer if you have any queries about the information in our manual. Ah, commercial letter size - there are book sizes and indent sizes and changed book sizes..... and who knows what others. For simplicity, this page shows the monobloc size, one of the two most commonly used sizes.
It seems there is no agreement whether to omit a line after your sender and before the date: some policies suggest this, others do not. Let us trust that your commercial letter will be successful, no matter what your choices! If you use the pad format to write a commercial letter, all information is left-justified, with an inches margin around it.
First, enter your own adress, then jump over a line and enter the date, then jump over another line and enter the internal adress of the recipient. When you use a heading that already contains your postal code, do not re-enter this information, but simply start with the date.
In the case of official correspondence, acronyms should be avoided as far as possible. Ignore another line before the form of address followed by a colon. In this case, the following line should be skipped. Then, write the letter without indenting at the beginning of a paragraph, as shown here. Skipping rows between subparagraphs. Once you have written the letterbody, enter the end, followed by a decimal point, leaving 3 empty rows, then enter your name and heading (if applicable), all left-justified.
Write the letter in the spaces above your name. Yours faithfully, Mrs Jones. Competent consulting for all types of products, no matter what your selection.
Do not abbreviate official correspondence. Skipping rows between hefts. Yours faithfully Further information about mail can be found under Cover Letter.
