  • What is a free-form letter?

    A Free-form Letter helps you easily draft almost any business correspondence in a clean, organized format. It has an open-ended body, so you can tailor it to your needs while maintaining the overall structure of the letter.

  • How long is a formal letter?

    A formal letter consists of several components. The components of a formal letter include: your address, the address of the person you are writing to, the date, a salutation or greeting, body paragraphs, and your signature. Typically, the body will consist of three paragraphs.

  • How do I write a formal letter?

    As described above, the body of the formal letter should be about three paragraphs long. In the first paragraph, you should briefly introduce yourself and describe the purpose of your letter. The second paragraph should include relevant information explaining why you are writing the letter. Finally, the third paragraph should be a call to action (i.e. what you want the recipient to do.)

  • How do you start a letter of request?

    The introductory paragraph of a letter of request essentially follows the same format as that of a formal letter. You should include a brief introduction of who you are and why you are writing to the recipient in the first body paragraph. If applicable, you can establish a connection with the recipient by reminding them of any prior interactions that you have had with them in the past.
