Chapter 4. Appearance of the Letter > Various Formats for Letter Writing

Various Formats for Letter Writing

The format used for a letter is typically determined by the person writing the letter. Sometimes a company will have a house style for a format in which letters must be written, but typically the writer must choose the format.

The full-block, block, semiblock, and simplified-letter formats presented here can all be used effectively for writing any business letter. Some letter writers find that the simplified letter is not traditional enough for their taste; others find it a perfect solution to the problem of sexist language in letter salutations. Be that as it may, these four formats are the standard ones used for most business letters written today.
