Module 6 Assignment: Writing a Reader Centered Letter




Question;Module 6 Assignment: Writing a Reader Centered Letter24 PointsAt work, you will usually use letters when writing relatively short messages to readers outside of your employer?s organization. These readers may include customers, clients, suppliers, and government agencies, among others. Your letter should be two-three pages in length.*Do not forget to refer to Project Six?s Rubric.More information on writing a reader centered letter:Follow the conventions for opening and closing a letter. Avoid slang and jargon. Choose a formal vocabulary, but avoid the correspondence clich?s and bureaucratese as indicated on page 474 of your text.The introductory paragraph typically indicates the letter?s topic, explains its purpose, and indicates, perhaps implicitly, its relevance to the reader. Often an introductory paragraph expresses gratitude or appreciation of the reader-for instance by thanking the reader for a letter to which the writer is responding.Closing paragraphs often make a social gesture-for example by expressing pleasure in working with the reader, offering to assist the reader, and the like.Use a formal greeting in the salutation. Consistent with the relative formality of letters, it is customary to use the reader?s last name in the salutation. However, if you call the person by his or her first name in conversation or if the reader has signed a letter to you with only a first name, then it is acceptable that you will use the person?s first name in the salutation.Create a formal signature block. At the end of the letter, writers usually end with a formal phrase, such as ?Sincerely? or ?Cordially,? and identify themselves by typing their full names and their title. Between these formalities, they sign their name in ink (page 478).Sign neatly. Readers draw inferences about writers based on their handwriting. Usually writers sign their full name when first addressing a reader. Afterwards, they may sign only their first name to signal that they would be comfortable being addressed by their first name in the future.List the people to whom you are sending copies. As a courtesy to your readers, let them know who else will be reading your letter. Sometimes the list assures readers that the writer has conveyed the letter?s information to all who should have it. It also lets the reader know who might ask them about the letter?s contents. Tip: For letters that do not fill the page, place the content so its middle is slightly above the middle of the page.Tip: On letterhead paper, type your message with the same margins that the letterhead uses. Keep the same margins on subsequent pages.
