Module 2: The Writing Process
Includes : Prewriting, Organizing, Drafting, Revising and Editing
Prewriting: purpose (to keep record, to give instructions, to encourage action or
promote goodwill), scope ( what is the level of detail required , how long does it have to
be , format and are visuals required) and audience ( ask yourself what their position is ,
what their interests could be, their knowledge and if they will be neutral , resistant or
receptive to your communication)
To pick the appropriate medium of communication consider : accuracy, speed, cost and
permanence , privacy , audience and feedback ( how fast you need the response)
Module 3: Memos, Emails, Routine Internal Communications

Emails are used since they create a record unlike phone conversations or meetings,
they reach a wider audience using CC, communicates with sensitivity, used for internal
and informal external communication
