Continuing to read advice about/think about complaint letters
Don’t forget to wrap up peer review on the email project by the end of the day Wednesday, and also don’t forget the final version will be due to me by the end of the day on Friday. This assignment is a little different in that you will actually send me the emails (and remember that the subject line and a proper email address matter as part of this assignment!) to my email at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will post only a link to your memo to the proper dropbox on emuonline.
But on with the complaint letters. Here are a couple of more pieces of advice on writing effective complaint letters:
- From the Colorado State Writing Studio, this advice on Complaint Letters.
- From the Grammar Girl web site, “How to Write a Complaint Letter.”
I think both of these are pretty good and they both go beyond an issue of “formatting” and into what I can only describe as the real purpose of this class, to learn more about thinking rhetorically about how we write in professional settings. What do you think I mean when I say that?
