We skipped Chapter 13 in our book and moved ahead to Chapter 14 which discusses how to properly write emails, memos, and proposals. This is very important to get your news and publications published. If they are written crappy then nobody will want to take the time to redo it to publish it or claim it newsworthy, and most likely won’t want to work with you in the future either.
– You don’t want to send out anything with an information overload. Too much will make people lose their attention.
– Email is less formal than a letter, but more formal than a telephone call and should still contain a professional format to get information across.
– Memos should be one page or less and state the purpose immediately.
