"Golden Rules" for writing letters and memos

“Golden Rules” for writing letters and memos

(from L. Jones and R. Alexander)


1. Give your letter a heading if it will help the reader to see at glance what you’re writing about.

2. Decide what you are going to say before you start to write or dictate: if you don’t do this the sentences are likely to go on and on until you can think of a good way to finish. In other words, always try to plan ahead.

3. Use short sentences.

4. Put each separate idea in a separate paragraph. Numbering each paragraph may help the reader to understand better.

5. Use short words that everyone can understand.

6. Think about your reader. Your reader…

… must be able to see exactly what you mean:

Your letters should be C L E A R

… must be given all the necessary information:

Your letters should be C O M P L E T E

… is likely to be a busy person with no time to waste:

Your letters should be C O N C I S E

… must be addressed in a sincere, polite tone:

Your letters should be C O U R T E O U S

… may get a bad impression if there are mistakes in grammar, punctuation and spelling:

Your letters should be C O R R E C T
