Writing Challenges #1 & 2
Informal Letter of
Recommendation

An unscrupulous friend of
yours has asked you to write
a letter of recommendation.
Normally, this would call for
a formal, professional tone.
You are going to write a
letter of recommendation
alright, but you will use
INFORMAL diction, speaking
to his/her future employer.
Use slang, personal pronouns
(me, I, you, we, our), and lots
of VOICE!

Write a FORMAL break-up
note to your significant
other! This means that you
should write this letter as if
you are writing to your
boss, or other respected
adult. Be VERY polite, use
STRONG word choice (BIG
words), and articulate your
ideas clearly!
