From university students to business executives, the need to compose and mail a formal/official letter can be found in a wide variety of fields and situations. As described by thoughtco.com, writing a letter comes in plenty of different forms, as well as distinctions between a letter made for personal purposes and those written for business/formal uses.
Therefore, to make sure the content of your letter is appropriate for formal needs, we’ve prepared several easy tips (below) on creating one in macOS and Apple Pages!
To start off, you should first prepare the overall format of your letter before drafting its contents. Go ahead and open a blank file in Apple Pages, then go to the Document tab on the right and set the size and page orientation; the orientation should be in Portrait while the size can be set to whatever you need at the moment (A4 and US sizes are the usual go-to’s).
With your general layout taken care of, it’s time to input the date of when you’re writing the document. Since we’re working on a formal letter instead of a personal one, your date should be aligned to the left side. After that, leave two empty spaces under the date and then write down the recipient’s name with their address following just below.
After adding the date and recipient’s information, you now have to work on the main content of your letter. Start with an appropriate greeting/salutation to the reader; using “Dear [NAME],” is suitable for a formal letter.
Now, state the reason for writing to them (the reader) through your opening paragraph/statement. For the next part, draft the main body of your letter--the actual purpose for writing in the first place.
You can end your letter with a paragraph containing a statement of what action you think the receiver might take. Next, for the purpose of a formal letter, write either “Sincerely,” or “Regards,” as your letter’s closing greeting; before writing down your name, leave at least 4 empty lines between that and the greeting for your email signature (or handwritten signature, if you plan on printing out the letter).
Also, always remember to review and correct your letters before mailing them. And so, with that, it’s ready to send to whoever it may concern. For some more help in writing your resignation notice, permission request, or whatever else, be sure to have a gander at our Formal Letter Templates!
