Writing Memos and Letters

 
Video Overview

  • They and others discuss the writing process; their purposes, audiences, and formats.
  • The writer says it’s her job to gather facts, organize them, and make sure they’re correct.
  • The owner talks about research.
  • Both share how they revise and why revision is important.
  • The owner talks about the computer’s spellchecker, and tells the story of presenting her business plan to possible funders.
