Professional Writing Assignment

PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTION CAREFULLY AND follow everything wrote it done ,Please make sure that you have read textbook Chapter 1 and pages 9-1 to 9-12 of Chapter 9.And Chapter 17 in the attachment before you start doing the assignment to see examples and other details.

Business is often conducted through writing. Letters, memos, and e-mails can help to create business, answer questions, make announcements, and solve problems. A key goal of such professional documents is to try to create or maintain goodwill.

In this assignment, as we have discussed in class, you will write one professional letter, one memo, and one e-mail to three different people to address a hypothetical business situation of your choice. Please thoroughly read textbook Chapters 1, 9 (only pages 9-1 to 9-12), and 17 before you begin drafting your documents. The chapters explain how to write and format the documents and also provide examples of business scenarios that may help you in selecting your own hypothetical scenario on which to base your documents. Think of the type of professional situation that you are likely to encounter in your intended career. The situation can involve collaborating on a project, starting business with a new customer or client, providing information/reminder, answering a question, solving a problem, scheduling a meeting, etc.

Write a formal business letter to a customer or client, a memo to fellow employees, and an e-mail to one employee or supervisor related to your hypothetical scenario (simulation). If you cannot think of one professional scenario that you could adapt for each of the three assignments, you may use three different scenarios for each of the assignments, still writing to three different audiences as discussed. Use the proper formats for each document; use full block style (all text aligned along the left margin, no indents, with single-spaced paragraphs and double spacing between paragraphs) for the letter. Use 1-inch to 1.5-inch margins (as you prefer) for the letter and memo. However, for the subject line, use wording that would be appropriate for your hypothetical scenario; do not use wording like “Assignment.” Your salutation line (“Dear …”) should be addressed to the “person” to whom you are writing in the scenario.

Your letter and memo should be in hard copy and submitted in class on the due date (as noted on the syllabus). Each document should be no more than one typed page. The e-mail can be somewhat shorter. For all three assignments, use 12-point font and a professional-looking typeface such as Times New Roman or Palatino Linotype. You should bring a draft to class on draft day (as noted on the syllabus). The draft may be hard copy or an electronic version via a laptop.

Use engaging but professional language and good transitions. Your word choices should not be too lofty, but they also should not be too basic and informal (no slang). A professional conversational tone is best. In the letter, because it is formal, avoid using contractions. Buffer a negative message with neutral and positive information at the beginning and an attempt to provide a helpful solution at the end to maintain goodwill. (See textbook Chapter 17.)

Proofread and revise carefully. Use a dictionary (print, electronic, or online) to check words that you are unsure of using/spelling. The correct spelling of names is crucial in business. Think of your business writing as a reflection of your professional image. Effective writing enhances a career in any field.
