Write for Business is a concise writing handbook that teaches the communication skills needed for success on the job. You'll discover strategies for writing effective emails, memos, résumés, letters, reports, proposals, instructions, policies, procedures, and much more. You'll find guidelines for writing each form, exemplary models, and checklists for revising and refining.
Write for Business focuses on the seven traits of effective writing: ideas, organization, voice, words, sentences, correctness, and design. These traits guide you through the writing process, helping you diagnose problems with writing and apply specific solutions.
You will also find explanations and examples for the key rules in business writing: punctuation, capitalization, spelling, mechanics, usage, and grammar. The final sections of the book provide extra help to those who speak English as a second language, unpacking some of the trickier rules of the language.
