2P 2014: The Art of Asking Nicely

Over the next 2-3 days, we will examine the art of asking nicely, which includes letter writing, negotiation, and other forms of communication.

Today, you will write two letters, each in a different style. Regardless of the form you decide to use, your letters will feature:

  • a salutation (a fancy term for greeting)
  • problem-step (the explanation…why are you writing this letter?)
  • action step (what do you want the recipient to do?)

Forms of Letters

  • Letter of Complaint
  • Letter of Acceptance
  • Letter of Apology
