“Professional style” is a term we are going to use to
describe the style of
writing used in professional, business, and public-policy situations.
All writing to and from the government is written in a professional style.
This is especially true if you are writing on behalf of
a governmental body. Even
if what you are writing doesn’t feel very
important or formal, you are writing on behalf of the sovereign, whether
it is the federal, state, or local government.
… something not to be taken lightly.
Writing in a professional style is important for all types of writing we talk about this semester.
