Up to Snuff #44: Letters and Memos

Up to Snuff #44:  Letters and Memos

By, Afua Serwah Osei-Bonsu

According to Kennedy’s, “Technical and Professional Writing,” a memo records “an opinion, an action, a plan or a train of events.” (Kennedy, pg. 361) Memos are said to be for insiders and include in their basic initiation To, From, Date and Subject stacked up, skip two lines a purpose statement, then background information, then summary or answer, reference to another memo or correspondence, then develop pertinent details, conclusion, typists initials, enclosures.  (Kennedy, Pg. 365)

A letter, in contrast to a memo, generally “solves problems with or for outsiders.” (Kennedy, 361) When letters arrive to insider’s examples may include things like “congratulatory letters, recommendation letters, letters of promotion, disciplinary letters, and letters of resignation or dismissal.” (Kennedy, 361)

What should be included in a business letter are at top senders name and address centered with name bold, skip 3 lines, date, skip 3 lines, recipients name title & address, skip one line, salutation recipient and colon, skip one line, pertinent information ~3 paragraphs or more, complimentary close, skip 4 lines to printed name with senders signature above.  (Kennedy, Pg. 363, Figure 10.1)  The basic structure of letters and memo’s is absolute and includes an introduction, a body and a conclusion.  (Kennedy, Pg. 364)

I have held jobs were letter writing was a constant and regular event.  The most common things in this particular job with an art center that I worked on were emails or thank you letters to donors.  The letters usually contained about 3 paragraphs in which to cite the gift and give thanks while acknowledging how the gift would be applied.  Then in the second paragraph to warm the donor with a personal connection and in the final closing paragraph to invite the donor to enjoy the many offerings by highlighting current and upcoming events at the arts center. Then close the letter and sometimes add an ink or personal note to further warm the donor.  It was imperative to use things like templates connected to the database, csv files and mail merge plus professionally sealing letters with a plastic water and sponge gadget and thinking about the reader’s first glance. Even the choice of seasonal stamp mattered and often beautified or even revolutionized the letters.

The recipients of a memo may be internal “insiders” within a company or organization and the recipients of a letter tend to be external or “outsiders.”  An inside memo may have a more casual format than a letter which may be contractual or even of  legal quality, more formal and considerably more restrained.

Art Writing #3, In Support of The Arts

In Support of the Arts

I had this epiphany where I was writing my eulogy in a writing class (imagined) and

decided spontaneously what I would want for my “future self” and what I want for the world at all.

One thing that dawned on me was my life- long love of the arts that started in childhood elementary school when I began telling people that I was going to be an art teacher when I grew up.

The first thing I tried to figure out was how I would achieve this strange “eulogy” that ultimately equaled my legacy.  The experience became a technique for setting life-long goals and building ones legacy.

To make a long story short, one key area I chose was to work “in support of the arts” and make a list of arts venues that I would support perhaps with an annual gift over time.  I became a young donor.  With knowledge of fundraising and annual gifts and different giving seasons, I preferred around Christmas to make an annual gift to six different arts venues with a Christmas card giving thanks for supporting artists, with exhibitions, education and programming.

The holiday season is upon us I urge all Revolving Stream readers to pull out their check books and make annual gifts to non-profits and venues they wish to support or have utilized.  It’s great to choose an area and cover that area.  It’s even possible to form a family trust and work on long term giving goals. When you see your attorney for estate planning it’s possible to also include local non-profits in your will and estate planning.  Below are some of my recommendations especially for local readers:
