Letter Writing Under the Radar

June 28, 2010 – 1:54 pm

Most of my articles and templates on letter writing deal with the most requested letters such as: recommendation letters, reference letters, business introduction letters, cover letters, and a couple of others.

Nevertheless, in addition to those usual suspects, there are a number of other letter types for which visitors to my websites often request information and samples. Below are links to sample templates of my seven (7) most requested “under the radar” letters:

Appreciation Letter or Letter of Appreciation

Goodbye Letter or Farewell Letter

Invitation Letter or Letter of Invitation

Congratulations Letter or Letter of Congratulations

Termination Letter or Letter of Termination

Apology Letter or Letter of Apology

Condolence Letter or Letter of Condolence

Most of the above letters can be of a personal or a business nature, depending on the specific situation involved. Make sure you compose and format yours accordingly.

  5. Hi Shaun! Thanks for the great work you are doing with writing help. I am still under the frenzy of the world cup, enjoying the great sound of vuvuzela and the challenges posed to goal-keepers by the jabulani football. Though my country has been eliminated, I am getting full value for my time from Ghana, Brazil, Argentina, and West Germany.

    I don’t have words to express my gratitude for having your English writing lessons, where I couldn’t find any reference in Afghanistan. I have also shared some important topics with colleagues when ever required.

  11. Dear ol’ Aus.
    Well, we tried.
    Should never had bothered.
    Foot(roundball)ball is not a code we know well enough.
    Perhaps we are just trying to satisfy some of countrymen from other countries.
    More likely it is BIG BUSINESS attempting to make large profits from imported players.
    HO Hum.

  15. Dear Shaun,
    I really do not know how to thank you; I just wanna tell you that I appreciate your efforts to develop our English business language. Your mini course in writing business letters is very useful. But I wonder if you can widen your help and give me some notes to develop my English in general cause I have the desire to professionally speak and write English in a short time. Waiting to hear from you

    Thanks a lot.
