How to Write Any Type of Letter
Everyone should know how to write a letter, whether a business inquiry, email, personal letter, or letter-format social media post. Letter writing is a useful skill, not only for communicating clearly, but also for making a good impression—especially a first impression.
Below we explain how to write a proper letter, no matter the type you need. We’ll cover the correct format for a formal letter, such as a cover letter or job inquiry, as well as tips for writing a personal letter, with some helpful examples of each.

What type of letter should you write?
There are no hard-and-fast rules. The most suitable letter format depends on your audience. For a friend or close relative, a casual message or informal letter is usually the best way to go. There are different types of letters that are appropriate for this format. Some include:
- Handwritten letters
- Emailed letters
- Typed social media messages
However, for business contacts or people you don’t know well, a typed formal letter is almost always the most appropriate choice. When used for professional purposes, writing a formal letter is effective for the following:
- Cover letters
- Letters of intent
- Value proposition letters
- Business memorandum letters
- Promotion letters
- Reference letters
- Resignation letters
- Thank you letters
These are just some of the types of letters that you might need to write in a casual or professional environment. Before writing a letter, consider the type of letter you need: formal or informal. Each has a distinct format you’ll want to follow.
Formal letter writing: block style vs. AMS style
Formal letters—like cover letters, business inquiries, and urgent notifications— are some of the most important letters you’ll ever have to write. Because they’re sometimes used as official documents, formal letters have a very precise structure and particular format. In fact, there are a few different “correct formats” to choose from.
The most common formats for formal letter writing are block style and American Mathematical Society, or AMS, style. In the example below, we use block style, specifically full block style, because it’s the most popular. Block style is characterized by all elements being aligned on the left margin of the page. This includes the first lines of paragraphs, which don’t use indentation.
AMS is fairly similar, following many of the same rules as block style. There are a few differences, however, which we briefly cover after the next section.
How to write a formal letter in block style
Step 1: write the contact information and date .
All formal letters start with the contact information and date . In the full block style, this goes in the upper left-hand corner.
First, as the sender, type your full name and address aligned to the left side, just as you would when addressing an envelope. This isn’t just a formality, but a useful inclusion so the recipient can easily find your contact information when they want to respond.
If you’re writing on official company letterhead that already includes this information, you do not need to rewrite the contact information.
After your address, skip a line and then add the date you’re writing the letter.
Last, skip a line again and add the recipient’s name and full address. Feel free to include their job title below their name if it’s relevant. Leave a blank line after the contact information before writing the salutation.
Step 2: Write the salutation
Formal letters always have a greeting at the beginning of the written content as a cue that your message is about to begin. This is known as the salutation.
Most salutations begin with “Dear” and then the name of the recipient. All salutations use title capitalization and end in a comma .
If you don’t know the name of the receiver, you can also use a job title or even the department name, for example, “Dear HR Representative.” As a last resort, you can use the generic salutation “To Whom It May Concern” in any circumstance. Try to avoid “Dear Sir or Madam,” as it’s a little outdated.
Step 3: Write the body of the letter
This is where you write your message. The body of the letter follows the normal rules of grammar , so write it as you would any other formal document. The one exception for full block style is that you do not indent the first lines of paragraphs .
Unlike personal letters, formal letters are straightforward and direct , so don’t be afraid to get straight to the point . Some formal letters are only a sentence or two long, although others can go on for paragraphs if there’s a lot of information to convey. The important thing is that you stay focused and avoid tangential topics.
Although different company cultures have different communication standards, it’s a safe bet to avoid casual phrasing and jokes; some even advise against using contractions . It should go without saying, but don’t use slang, profanity, or other inappropriate language.
If your letter covers a lot, it’s best to include a closing paragraph at the end to summarize everything the recipient needs to know. As always, don’t forget to edit and proofread the body of the letter before sending.
Step 4: Write the complimentary close
Formal letters also use a standard complimentary close or sign-off, similar to the salutation, before ending with an authentic signature.
One of the most common closers is “Sincerely,” including some variations like, “With sincere gratitude,” or “ Sincerely yours .” Other common sign-offs include “Best,” and “Yours.” Unlike salutations, closers use sentence capitalization. Always capitalize the first letter of your complimentary close, but only the first letter. And just like the salutation, always end with a comma .
If you’re sending a paper letter, skip a few lines after your complimentary close—this is where you sign your name. Additionally, always type your name below the signature , along with your job title if relevant. When sending an email or other digital letter, you don’t have to leave a blank line before you type your full name.
Step 5: Mention enclosed materials
This last step is necessary only if you’re sending additional materials with the letter, such as a résumé or CV, application, voucher, etc. If you’re sending only the letter, disregard this step.
After your printed name and optional job title (under your signature), skip a line and then write “Enclosure:” followed by a list of the materials you’ve included. For example, if you were including a résumé, you would write “Enclosure: Résumé.” This is simply a precaution so the recipient doesn’t miss anything or, if they need to, can verify that something was lost in shipping.
Formal letter example (block style)
Detective Inspector G. Lestrade
35 Victoria Embankment
London, England SW1A 2JL, UK
July 1, 1888
Mr. Sherlock Holmes
221B Baker St.
London, England NW1 6XE, UK
Dear Mr. Holmes,
On behalf of the London police force, we request your presence at New Scotland Yard at your earliest convenience. We have a case that requires your special expertise, and we’d prefer to discuss the details in person, considering the sensitivity of the information. Any time before the end of the month is acceptable.
Enclosure: Visitor pass
How to write a formal letter in AMS style
For the most part, AMS style uses the same rules and guidelines as block style, including enclosures, so you can follow the steps above regardless of the style you use. However, there are two major differences in AMS style that you need to be aware of:
- Don’t leave a blank line between the sender’s full address and the date. The date comes directly underneath the address.
- AMS style always uses a subject line in place of or before the salutation. The subject line should be written in all caps and summarize the content of the letter in no more than a single line, such as “YOUR PRESENCE IS REQUESTED AT SCOTLAND YARD.” As with salutations, leave a blank line before and after the subject line.
Formal letter example (AMS style)
London, England SW1A 2JL, UK
YOUR PRESENCE IS REQUESTED AT SCOTLAND YARD
Dear Mr. Holmes,
How to write an informal letter
True to their name, informal letters are a lot more casual than formal letters. That means there aren’t nearly as many rules and guidelines, and no one will mind if you don’t leave a blank space in the right spot.
Still, there is a correct format that people are familiar with, so follow the steps below as a bare minimum.
Step 1: Put the date at the top (optional)
Putting the date at the top of a letter is a custom stemming from a time when letter writing was the primary means of communication. Nowadays, including the date is no longer a necessity, but some people still do it because of tradition. In informal letters, it’s completely optional.
Just like formal letters, informal letters start with a polite greeting to the recipient. The standard format is the same: the word “Dear” followed by the person’s name, as in “Dear Mr. Lestrade,” using title capitalization.
However, informal letters provide more freedom when it comes to what you say in your greeting, and it’s not uncommon to see casual greetings like, “Hi [Name],” or “Hello [Name].”
As with salutations in formal letters, you normally end your greeting with a comma and then skip a line before beginning the body of the letter. Occasionally you see people end the salutation with an exclamation point, depending on their relationship with the recipient.
The body of the letter is where you write your message, and informal letters are often meant to share news or keep in touch. They tend to have a conversational tone, which means you’re free to include slang and whatever language you use when speaking in person.
While tangents are more permissible in informal letters, going off topic excessively can still bother the reader. Try to stay focused as best you can without sounding restrained—informal letters are supposed to be personal, after all.
Informal letters also use a complimentary close before the signature, following the same format as formal letters. That includes using sentence capitalization (capitalizing only the first letter), adding a comma at the end, and leaving enough space to sign your name if you’re sending a paper letter.
However, you don’t need to stick with the conventional sign-offs like “Sincerely.” If you’re writing a personal letter, you can use something more sentimental depending on the relationship with the recipient, such as “Love,” “Warm regards,” or “See you soon.”
Informal letter example
July 2, 1888
What’s up, Lestrade!?
It’s Sherlock! So stoked to receive your letter. Of course I’ll come to Scotland Yard ASAP, no worries.
Sherlock “Best Detective Ever” Holmes
PS stands for postscript . It’s something you add at the last minute after the letter is complete, usually either minor news or something small you forgot when writing the body of the letter. Typically, you don’t use postscripts in formal letters; if you need to add something, you’ll have to revise the whole document to include the new information.
When writing a postscript, simply write the letters “PS” and then your message. It doesn’t matter if you use periods or not (“PS” and “P.S.” are both acceptable), but both letters should always be capitalized.
If you have more than one postscript, simply add another P to the beginning of each new PS. For example, your second postscript should be labeled “PPS.” and your third postscript should be “PPPS.”
PS. Rob got the position at Great Company! Thanks for all the support during his unemployment.
PPS. I have to cancel my birthday party, but we’re still getting together for drinks that night if you want to come.
In the United States, the maximum weight for a first-class letter is 3.5 ounces. If your letter is more than three pages or you’ve written it on heavy paper, you’ll have to weigh it to make sure it meets the requirements. The size and shape of the envelope matter too. It has to be rectangular and smaller than roughly 6 by 11 inches, or you run the risk of the post office returning it.
Sending a letter
After you’ve determined that the envelope is the right kind, now you just have to mail it. (If it’s a personal letter, you can always deliver it yourself. In that case, just write the intended recipient’s name on the outside of the envelope. A bonus of hand delivery? You can use any size or shape envelope you want!)
In the top left-hand corner, write your name and address or attach a mailing label. In the center of the envelope, carefully write the name and address of the recipient. Besides the state abbreviation and zip code, international letters should include the country for both the destination and return addresses.
Postage rates vary. Check the US Postal Service website for current prices or use a Forever Stamp for US destinations. Postage goes on the top right-hand corner of the envelope.
Double-check that everything is correct on the outside of the envelope. If it is, fold your letter and insert it neatly. Don’t seal it until you’re sure that you’ve included every page you intend to send.
Still not sure how to write a proper letter? Keep these letter-writing tips in mind to help you communicate with confidence.
While personal letters naturally tend to use a friendly tone, formal letters, too, can benefit from pleasantries and polite etiquette. A simple phrase like “How are you?” or “I hope you’re well” at the beginning of a letter can help connect the sender and recipient, even if the subject matter is strictly business.
Likewise, you can also express sympathy, regret, support, or gratitude in both formal and informal letters. Aside from mere etiquette, these pleasantries establish a personal connection that separates your letters from those written by machines.
Write for your reader
As with all writing, modify your language to accommodate your specific reader. If you’re writing a formal letter to a business associate, be professional and courteous. If you’re writing a personal letter to an old friend, feel free to crack jokes and use slang.
Sometimes the lines blur—a “formal letter” to a work friend might be more casual than a “personal letter” to a distant relative. Keep in mind the specific reader as you write to strike the right tone. If you’ve never met the recipient before, stick to courteous formality.
Include all necessary information
If you have a lot of information to convey, make a small list beforehand to make sure you cover everything. Treat this like a mini-outline to make sure nothing slips through the cracks.
This is especially important for invitations or letters about scheduling events. Make sure you clearly state the essential facts—particularly where and when —as well as other need-to-know information, like directions or special requirements.
Doesn’t it feel good sending a letter you’ve carefully prepared? Certainly, a well-written letter has the best chance of accomplishing its purpose. To make sure your letter really shines, it’s critical that it be mistake-free and set the right tone. Grammarly’s writing assistance catches things like spelling and grammatical mistakes, and Grammarly Premium includes formatting suggestions and guidance that can help you write clear, easy-to-follow letters that hold your recipient’s attention. By using Grammarly, you can write your letter with confidence, wherever you type!

How to type Spanish letters and accents (á, é, í, ó, ú, ü, ñ, ¿, ¡) From Paralee.
From reference section by paralee..
How to Type Spanish Letters and Accents (á, é, í, ó, ú, ü, ñ, ¿, ¡)
67.5K There are several ways to configure your keyboard to type in the Spanish accented letters and upside-down punctuation (á, é, í, ó, ú, ü, ñ, ¿, ¡) and which one you use depends on the frequency with which you need these letters.
- Inserting Accented Characters with an English Keyboard Layout
If you only need an accented character every now and then, there is no need to change your full keyboard layout.
For all PCs
There are several key combinations you can use to insert single characters into your text on a PC. The first is for newer computers using the Control key and may only work in Microsoft Office.
In Office for Windows: For accented vowles: Press Ctrl + , then the vowel (ctrl + ' + a = á)
For Ñ: Press Ctrl + ~, then the letter n (ctrl + ~ + n = ñ)
The second way is using the ASCII code. Each character in your computer has a code made up of pressing the ALT key then a three-digit number, all of which are listed below.
á = Alt + 0225
é = Alt + 0233
í = Alt + 0237
ó = Alt + 0243
ú = Alt + 0250
ñ = Alt + 0241
ü = Alt + 0252
¡ = Alt + 0161
¿ = Alt + 0191
To type the numbers, you must use the numeric keypad on the right side of your keyboard, not the number keys on the top row.
For all Macs
To get accented vowels on a Mac, hold down the Option key, and while holding it down, type the letter e; then release those keys and type the letter that you want the accent to appear on:
Opt + e, then a = á
Opt + e, then e = é
Opt + e, then i = í
Opt + e, then o = ó
Opt + e, then u = ú
For the ñ, hold down the Option key while you type the n, then type n again.
Opt + n, then n = ñ
To type an umlaut over the u, hold down the Option key while pressing the u key then type u again.
Opt + u, then u = ü
*To type the upside-down punctuation marks press the following keys all at once.
Opt + 1 = ¡
Opt + shift + ? = ¿
- Full Keyboard Configuration
For those using Spanish letters and punctuation on a regular basis, I recommend going into your Control Panel/System Preferences and add the Spanish keyboard configuration. This will mean you need to learn the new key placements, but it is very easy once you get used to it.
For Windows Vista
Go to your Control Panel Click on "Clock, Language, Region Click on "Change Keyboards" Click "Add" and Select "Spanish-International Sort" For Windows XP:
Go to your Control Panel Click on "Date, Time, Language, and Regional Options" Click on "Regional and Language Options" Select the "Languages" tab at the top Click on "Details" near the bottom Click "Add" and choose "Spanish-Traditional Sort" Go back to the "Languages" tab and choose the option to "switch languages" by pressing "left alt-shift" at the same time. This way, you can switch to and from the Spanish and regular keyboard whenever you want. For Macs
Go to your System Preferences Click on "International" Select the "Input Menu" tab Scroll down to select "Spanish - ISO" Note the keystrokes necessary to switch between languages OR Select "Show input menu in menu bar" to be able to click-select which keyboard you want to use. Spanish-International Sort Keyboard Layout
Spanish-International Sort Keyboard Key Strokes
' + a = á
' + e = é
' + i = í
' + o = ó
' + u = ú
" + u = ü
Once you have installed your Spanish keyboard, it will react slightly differently than you are used to. First, you will notice that when you type an apostrophe ( ' ), nothing happens. This is because if you type a vowel immediately after, you will get an accented vowel (á, é, í, ó, ú). To get an apostrophe, push the key for the hyphen, next to the number 0. You can see several other changes in the picture below.
The quotes ( " ) key behaves the same way as the apostrophe key in that it gives you the umlaut ( ¨ ) rather than quotes for the letter (ü) in words like "lingüística". To type in regular quotes, simply press shift then the number 2.
The semicolon ( ; ) key has also been replaced by the ñ. To type a regular semicolon, simply press shift then the comma key.
I set my PC to the English international setting. That allows me to use the right Alt key +e = é,
right Alt key +a =á right Alt key +e =é right Alt key + o= ó right Alt key +n=ñ right Alt key +?=¿ right Alt key +!= ¡ right Alt key then shift+" then u =ü (That is 4 keystrokes) If you uses a smaller note book computer you will not have key pads on the side of the keyboard.therefore the the method shown above using the Alt key plus the numbers will not work.
Lots of fun symbols among the ALT Codes
? Here's a very useful Link to the Alt Codes
Some helpful codes for Spanish accents : Alt 130 =é
Alt 160 = á . . . . Alt 161 = í . . . . Alt 162 = ó . . . Alt 163 = ú
and there's also Alt 164 = ñ & Alt 165 = Ñ
Helpful punctuation ?Alt 168 = ¿ & Alt 173 = ¡ . . . & Alt 19 = ?
(To use Alt Code Press and H o l d down the Alt Key and continue holding until you complete the number of the code you desire- Then release : - )
It's no biggie to memorize the "alt" codes. It's a lot faster than dropping down to the bottom of the answer box to get an accented vowel or upside down punctuation marks.
Great info! Thanks for all!
I personally prefer to buy a Spanish keyboard that is worth 20 and is easier :D
I use Mac and:
To type an umlaut over the u, hold down the Option key while pressing the u key then type u again in tubegalore or mr sexe .
Its too dificult for me
Worth another round .
Always useful for someone.

8 Ways to Make the Letter E
This post contains affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
Sharing is caring!

Check out our eight ways to make the letter E!
First, I printed two large letter E’s, which you can make yourself or use mine : giant letter E . Then my Two and Four filled their E’s with gems to reinforce the shape of the letter.
Next, they filled their E’s with buttons.
We got out colorful craft sticks to form the letter E with lines.
After this I had them use the craft sticks without the framework. My Four got it backward at first, but then had no trouble. His little brother needed me to put down the long vertical line first and guide him as he set out the three horizontal ones.
My Four liked using his Lincoln Logs.
Next, we got out the play dough. By this time the letter formation had gotten too tough for my Two, and he was doing his own thing. His big brother created this E. Yes, it was backwards. (Confession: I reversed the image for my collage up above!)
Then he took a craft stick and wrote in the play dough.
He used his finger to write in cornmeal. I have this great little wooden frame that came with another toy. We can put a light layer of cornmeal inside, write in it, and shake it gently to start all over.
Finally he was ready for something tough. He is not ready for traditional handwriting pages yet, so I designed this page. He started with the giant E (you can see how he made it incorrectly at first) and then progressed through the next smallest E until he was writing in the tiny ones. You can get the complete set of handwriting pages here .

Hi. I am wondering if you did all eight of these activities on the same day, or spread them out over several days. Thanks.
January 30, 2015 at 7:30 pm
Hi Vikki! We spread them out over several days. Since I had two boys doing these, we did a bunch each day. I am currently doing the alphabet with my three year old (he was one year old when I wrote this post). We just do 2 or 3 of these a week.
October 6, 2014 at 9:22 am
Thanks for the ideas! My child development class is helping the preschool learn there alphabet every week. This week is the letter E and and we need to help them recognize the letter E. This page helped out thank you:)
October 9, 2014 at 9:26 am
I’m glad this was helpful for you, Becca! If you haven’t already checked out my Alphabet page, you’ll find links to nearly every letter with tons of other activities. (We’re planning to finish up the whole alphabet in about six weeks!)

When getting in touch with a friend, most people will opt for a text or a social media message. Nothing beats a good, old-fashioned friendly letter, and this wikiHow will teach you how to write one!
Beginning the Letter
- If you tend to like to write in a slightly formal style, using "Dear" in your salutation is a nice choice. It sounds typical, but think about it: calling someone "dear" is actually very sweet, and indicates that you care about him or her. However, you don't have to read into it; "dear" is as appropriate for a letter to your best friend as it is for a letter to an acquaintance you just met.
- For a letter that is more casual in tone, consider beginning it with "Hi, [name]" or "Hello, [name]." This greeting is appropriate for a friend or relative, but don't begin a business letter this way; it's a bit too casual.
- Write a more personal greeting for someone with whom you are intimate, or want to be. For example, "Dearest [name]," "My [name]" or "Sweet [name]."
- Be sure to end your greeting with a comma. It is also formally correct to begin the body of the letter on the next line.  X Research source
Drafting the Body
- "How are you doing?" or "How have you been?" are common ways to start a letter. Asking a question helps make the letter feel like part of a longer conversation. If you'd like a reply to your letter, feel free to pepper it with questions throughout.
- You can use the first paragraph to inquire more deeply about the recipient's life. For example, "I hope little Julie has been enjoying kindergarten. I can't believe she's gotten so big!"
- Referencing the time of year is another common letter opening. Think of it as the equivalent to making small talk before you launch into a deeper conversation. For example, "I hope you've been having a wonderful fall. The trees in my neighborhood are more brilliant than they've ever been before. I think we're in for a cold winter, though."
- Write about what's happening in your life. No matter what it says, your letter will probably be appreciated, but the recipient will feel much closer to you (and therefore the letter will be more effective) if it's revealing. Tell what events have occurred, what emotions you've felt, and what plans you have for the future.
- Don't create an airbrushed picture of your life; that defeats the purpose of a friendly letter. Avoid a holiday newsletter-style update; your friend will start skimming to the bottom if you just list everything you've accomplished since your last letter. You don't have to go too deep into your troubles, but try to portray your life realistically.
- You can also discuss topics of mutual interest. Write your thoughts on art, politics, current events, or any other subject that you'd discuss with your friend in person.
- Consider suggesting movies you've seen that you think your friend would like, or books you've read that you want to recommend. Sharing good information is always welcome in letters.
Closing the Letter
- Reiterate the purpose of the letter. For example, if you invited your friend to come to a party, write, "I hope you can come!" If you simply wanted to wish your friend a happy season, write, "Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!" or something to that effect.
- Encourage your friend to write back. If you'd like a response, write, "Hope to hear from you soon," or, "Please write back!"
- If you want to write a formal closing, consider "Sincerely," "Warmly," or "Best wishes."
- If your letter is more casual in tone, try "Yours," "Take care," or "Cheers."
- For a more intimate closing, choose "Love," "Much love," or "Thinking of you."  X Research source

About This Article
Before you write a friendly letter, add the date on the top left corner of the paper so your friend can save the letter and look back on it. Start the letter by writing “Dear [Their Name],” and then mention things you both are mutually interested in like current events or politics just like you would if you were talking out loud. If you think of something you want to add after you've signed the letter, you can always add a postscript, or PS, with one final insight or joke!

Learning all of the letters of the alphabet in cursive
Home » Cursive e
- Lowercase e
- Uppercase E
It’s unfortunate that cursive writing isn’t being taught as often in school as it has in the past. We created this cursive letter page to help those who want to learn to write cursive letters if they didn’t have the opportunity to learn while at school. This is also an excellent resource for those who are homeschooling their kids and want them to learn how to write cursive. On this specific page, we concentrate on how to write the cursive “e”.
Before we specifically get into how to write a cursive “e”, it’s important for those learning to realize there are a wide variety of different cursive fonts that exist. No one font is better or more correct than the others meaning there is a wide variety of ways you can write cursive. In fact, one of the best things about cursive writing is your ability to take it and add your personal flair to make it exclusively your own once you know the basics of cursive writing. While there are a large number of different cursive styles, the one that’s taught at most US schools is D’Nealian cursive. With this being the case, we’ll use D’Nealian cursive to teach how to write a cursive “e” on this page.
How to Write a Lowercase Cursive “e”
The cursive “e” isn’t the easiest cursive letter to learn, but it’s certainly not the most difficult as well. While it looks similar to the printed “e”, there’s more of a tilt to it. There shouldn’t be too much trouble mastering how to write a cursive “e” if you’re patient and take the time to repeat and practice it. You’ll especially want to take note of some of the common mistakes that those first learning how to write a cursive “e” make so that you avoid making these mistakes when practicing. To help you see the proper way to write a cursive “e” and the mistakes that sometimes get made when writing it, we’ve created a video for you to watch. Taking the time to watch this video should help you to feel more comfortable when you do begin to write a cursive “e” on paper.
- Lowercase "e"
- Connecting "e's"
- Words starting with "e"
- Words that contain "e"
After watching the video a few times and getting the gist of how to write a cursive “e”, you can then start to write the cursive “e” yourself. If you happen to have a notebook and pencil handy, grab those and play the video again. This time, write the cursive “e” along with the video to practice. By repeating this a number of times you should get a good feel on how to write a cursive “e” and avoid the common mistakes that many make when first learning to write this letter.
If you happen to learn better with a bit more structure, you may want to use our cursive “e” worksheet below which will give you dotted lines that you can trace while practicing writing this letter. It should be helpful to trace the “e” while watching the video until you get the confidence that you know how to write it, then you can practice on your own without the video. Printing out several cursive “e” worksheets will also allow you to practice when you have a few spare moments of free time during the day. As with all cursive letters, the best way to learn them is to practice as much as you can and this is true with the cursive “e” as well.
Try one of the worksheets
We’re quite happy that you found your way here because of your interest in learning cursive letter writing. We’d love to hear from you about your opinions on the cursive “e” video and the cursive “e” worksheet we created. This is especially true if you have suggestions on how we can make these even better for those wanting to learn how to write the cursive alphabet. Your feedback is important and helps us to continually improve this page and the website.

Format of a Formal Letter
Help with formatting formal and business letters. A summary of writing rules including outlines for cover letters and letters of enquiry, and abbreviations used in letters.
There are times in life when you will probably want to write a formal letter instead of an informal letter or email. These include cover letters for job applications, letters of enquiry, letters of resignation, legal correspondence and many more. In these situations it's important that you follow the expected letter format.
How to Write a Formal Letter
- Layout of a formal letter
- Formal letter writing rules
- Content of a formal letter
- Formal letter template
- Abbreviations used in letter writing
- Template for a covering letter
- Template for a letter of enquiry
Use a formal letter format
The example letter writing format shown below shows you a general outline for a formal or business letter. Further information about each part of a formal letter can be found after the image.
Follow a formal letter format when writing formal letters
In English there are a number of official letter format conventions that should be used when formatting a formal or business letter. Furthermore, you try to write as simply and as clearly as possible, and not to make the letter longer than necessary. Remember not to use informal language like contractions.
1) Include your name and contact information
The return address should be written in the top right-hand corner of a formal letter. This will usually your address, but could be any other address to which a reply should be sent.
2) Include the recipient's name and address
Add the address of the person you are writing to. The recipient's address should be written on the left, often starting below your address. If you are going to print and post the letter using a windowed envelope, make sure you align this address with the clear plastic window.
3) Include the date
Different people put the date on different sides of the page. You can write this on the right or the left on the line after the address you are writing to. Write the month as a word.
4) Use the right salutation
The tip to starting a formal English letter is to greet the person you're writing to in the correct way. This is known as the Salutation . If you know the name of the person you're writing to then use 'Sir' or 'Madam' here, otherwise write their full name, including their title. Remember, try not to be too informal or casual.
a) If you do not know the name of the person you are writing to, use the following form (it is always advisable to try to find out a name):
Dear Madam, Dear Sir, Dear Sir or Madam,
b) If you know the name , use the title (Mr, Mrs, Miss or Ms, Dr, etc.) and the family name only. If you are writing to a woman and do not know if she uses Mrs or Miss , you can use Ms , which is for both married and single women.
Dear Mr Jenkins, Dear Ms Hamers, Dear Mrs Hutchins, Dear Miss Davis, Dear Dr Green, Etc.
5) Create the body of your formal letter
Write the body of your letter in formal language. Be direct and try to keep it as brief as possible, often between three or four paragraphs in total.
The first paragraph should be kept short and is designed to introduce you and to state the purpose of the letter- to make an enquiry, complain, request something, etc.
The paragraph or paragraphs in the middle of the letter should contain the relevant information behind the writing of the letter. Most letters in English are not very long, so keep the information to the essentials and concentrate on organising it in a clear and logical manner rather than expanding too much.
The last paragraph of a formal letter should state what action you expect the recipient to take- to refund, send you information, etc.
6) Close the letter with a formal sign-off
Just as there are conventions about creating the salutation for your letter, there are also rules about how you close or sign-off your letter. If you do not know the name of the person, end the letter using 'Yours faithfully'. If you know the recipient's name, use 'Yours sincerely'.
7) Add your signature
Sign your name, then print it underneath your signature using capital letters (or type it). If you think the person you are writing to might not know whether you are male of female, put your title in brackets after your name. Optionally, it can also be helpful to include your phone number and email address.
8) Proofread your letter
Now that you've completed the first draft of your letter, read if over from start to finish and check for any errors in grammar and spelling. Make sure it reads well and that the recipient will understand what the letter is about.

Abbreviations used in letter writing.
The following abbreviations are widely used in formal letters:
- asap = as soon as possible
- cc = carbon copy (when you send a copy of a letter to more than one person, you use this abbreviation to let them know)
- enc. = enclosure (when you include other papers with your letter)
- pp = per procurationem (A Latin phrase meaning that you are signing the letter on somebody else's behalf; if they are not there to sign it themselves, etc)
- ps = postscript (when you want to add something after you've finished and signed it)
- pto (informal) = please turn over (to make sure that the other person knows the letter continues on the other side of the page)
- RSVP = please reply
Outline: A Covering Letter
A covering letter is the one that accompanies your CV when you are applying for a job. Here is a fairly conventional plan for the layout of the paragraphs.
Opening Paragraph Briefly identify yourself and the position you are applying for. Add how you found out about the vacancy. Paragraph 2 Give the reasons why you are interested in working for the company and why you wish to be considered for that particular post. State your relevant qualifications and experience, as well as your personal qualities that make you a suitable candidate. Paragraph 3 Inform them that you have enclosed your current CV and add any further information that you think could help your case. Closing Paragraph Give your availability for interview, thank them for their consideration, restate your interest and close the letter.
Outline: A Letter of Enquiry
A letter of enquiry is when you are approaching a company speculatively, that is you are making an approach without their having advertised or announced a vacancy.
Opening Paragraph Introduce yourself briefly and give your reason for writing. Let them know of the kind of position you are seeking, why you are interested and how you heard about them. Paragraph 2 Show why their company in particular interests you, mention your qualifications and experience along with any further details that might make them interested in seeing you. Paragraph 3 Refer to your enclosed CV and draw their attention to any particularly important points you would like them to focus on in it. Closing Paragraph Thank them, explain your availability for interview and restate your enthusiasm for their company and desire to be considered for posts that might as yet be unavailable.

How to perfect your prompt writing for ChatGPT, Midjourney and other AI generators

Generative AI is having a moment. ChatGPT and art generators such as DALL-E 2, Stable Diffusion and Midjourney have proven their potential, and now millions are wracking their brains over how to get their outputs to look something like the vision in their head.
This is the goal of prompt engineering: the skill of crafting an input to deliver a desired result from generative AI.
Despite being trained on more data and computational resources than ever before, generative AI models have limitations . For instance, they’re not trained to produce content aligned with goals such as truth, insight, reliability and originality.
They also lack common sense and a fundamental understanding of the world, which means they can generate flawed (and even nonsensical) content.
As such, prompt engineering is essential for unlocking generative AI’s capabilities. And luckily it isn’t a technical skill. It’s mostly about trial and error, and keeping a few things in mind.
Read more: AI art is everywhere right now. Even experts don't know what it will mean
First, let’s use ChatGPT to illustrate how prompt engineering can be used for text outputs. If it’s used effectively, ChatGPT can generate essays , computer code , business plans , cover letters , poetry , jokes , and more.
Since it’s a chatbot, you may be inclined to engage with it conversationally. But this isn’t the best approach if you want tailored results. Instead, adopt the mindset that you’re programming the machine to perform a writing task for you.
Create a content brief similar to what you might give a hired professional writer. The key is to provide as much context as possible and use specific and detailed language. You can include information about:
- your desired focus, format, style, intended audience and text length
- a list of points you want addressed
- what perspective you want the text written from, if applicable
- and specific requirements, such as no jargon .
If you want a longer piece, you can generate it in steps. Start with the first few paragraphs and ask ChatGPT to continue in the next prompt. If you’re unsatisfied with a specific portion, you can ask for it to be rewritten according to new instructions.
But remember: no matter how much you tinker with your prompts, ChatGPT is subject to inaccuracies and making things up . So don’t take anything at face value. In the example below, the output mentions a “report” that doesn’t exist. It probably included this because my prompt asked it to use only reliable sources .
Midjourney is one of the most popular tools for art generation, and one of the easiest for beginners . So let’s use it for our next example.
Unlike for text generation, elaborate prompts aren’t necessarily better for image generation. The following example shows how a basic prompt combined with a style keyword is enough to create a variety of interesting images. Your style keyword may refer to a genre, art movement, technique, artist or specific work.
The following images were based on the prompt leopard on tree followed by different style keywords. These were (from the top left clockwise) synthwave , hyperrealist , expressionist and in the style of Zena Holloway . Holloway is a British photographer known for capturing her subjects in ethereal and somewhat surreal scenes, most often underwater.
You can also add keywords relating to:
- image qualities, such as “beautiful” or “high definition”
- objects you want pictured
- and lighting and colours.
With Midjourney, you can even use certain specific commands for different features, including ––ar or ––aspect to set the aspect ratio , ––no to omit certain objects, and ––c to produce more “unusual” results. This command accepts values between 0-100 after it, where the default is 0 and 100 leads to the most unusual result.
You can also use ––s or ––stylize to generate more artistic images (at the expense of following the prompt less closely).
The following example applies some of these ideas to create a fantasy image with a dreamlike and futuristic look. The prompt used here was dreamy futuristic cityscape, beautiful, clouds, interesting colors, cinematic lighting, 8k, 4k ––ar 7:4 ––c 25 ––no windows.
Midjourney accepts multiple prompts for one image if you use a double colon. This can lead to results such as the image below, where I provided separate prompts for the owl and plants. The full prompt was oil painting of an ethereal owl :: flowers, colors :: abstract :: wisdom ––ar 7:4 .
A more advanced type of prompting is to include an image as part of the prompt. Midjourney will then take the style of that image into account when generating a new one.
A good way to find inspiration and ideas is to explore the Midjourney gallery and style libraries .
A career of the future?
As generative AI models enter everyday life, prompting skills are likely to become more in-demand , especially from employers looking to get results using AI generators.
Some commentators are asking if becoming a “prompt engineer” may be a way for professionals such as designers, software engineers and content writers to save their jobs from automation, by integrating generative AI into their work. Others have suggested prompt engineering will itself be a career.
It’s hard to predict what role prompt engineering will play as AI models advance.
But it’s almost a given that more sophisticated generators will be able to handle more complex requests, inviting users to stretch their creativity. They will likely also have a better grasp of our preferences, reducing the need for tinkering.
