Editor’s Corner: Business Writing Resources

I was looking for a resource today to help a co-worker with some writing improvement tips. I thought I’d check out the trusty Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) because it has a lot of great lessons in it. The OWL did not let me down!

The link below has information on improving writing, understanding the purpose of different documents, and structuring documents appropriately.

Note: I’m not trying to override current practices, so if you already have a template for your documentation, keep using it as intended. This is simply a resource to help those who would like more information about these topics.

General writing topics include:

· Effective workplace writing

· Audience analysis

· Parallel structure

· Tone

· Design procedures

Document types include:

· White papers

· Technical reports

· Abstracts

· Proposals

· Memos

· Business letters

When you have a minute, check it out!
