FORMAL LETTER ( e-mail to a local daily)

Dec 21, 2018 / General / 12:40 am

You should spend 20 minutes on this task.

Your local newspaper would like to have a new regular feature on a subject of interest for readers. Readers are being encouraged to make suggestions sent in an e-mail to the newspaper. Write an e-mail to the newspaper.

In your e-mail

  •   suggest a topic that you think would be popular
  •   say why it would be of interest
  •   explain why it is more relevant than other topics

Write at least 150 words.

You do not need to write any addresses.

Begin your e-mail as follows:



Dear Madam,

I am a regular reader of your daily and I enjoy most of the articles. I am writing this letter in response to your suggestion-seeking from the readers about the publishing of a new weekly feature.

As most of the magazines and newspapers publish weekly articles which are very similar in nature, I think the readers would prefer to have something new. I would suggest you an article focusing on the developmental plans of the local governing body. I assume that readers would be very interested in the novelty value of such a feature and I think they would quit their passive attitude towards such activities.

This would create a sense of awareness about the progressive plans and would inspire them to participate in such activities actively.

I hope my suggestion would help you and I think you would consider it .

I look forward to seeing the changes.

Yours faithfully,
