The Letter of Apology or Denial
Your letter may be written to a customer, a third party, or some public entity, such as a community or government. Consider writing a letter that puts you in a situation that you could potentially experience. Please do not write a work of creative fiction. A situation for an apology could be an error in shipping a product, supplying a product or service, manufacturing a product, pricing a product, printing a label or advertising piece, or even missing an important meeting..
Please do not write a rejection letter to a job applicant or any other communication that uses “boilerplate language.”
Remember, you can usually soften the blow by beginning with a neutral statement or buffer. Recognizing a mistake and a sincere willingness to prevent further errors can go a long way.
The Letter to the Editor
Newspapers and blogs are filled with opinions. A letter to the editor is often a persuasive piece in which you present a claim or viewpoint and then support if with logical reasoning and credible evidence. If this sounds familiar, it is! Letters to the editors are short essays that can be found under the “Opinion” section of a newspaper.
If you have something you want to say, especially to the community, this could be the option for you. This letter should contain some business content. Examples of a business subject would be equal opportunity in technology companies, sexual harassment in the workplace, business property development, energy use minimum wage, healthcare for small businesses, tax reform, and environmental regulation. Of course, there are many more topics, and you are free to choose whatever you wish to discuss. the more passionate about the subject you are, the better.
