Effective Writing in the Public Sector addresses both students and practitioners in public administration, offering clear, easy-to-understand guidelines on not only how to write correctly but also how to write more clearly, concisely, coherently, and, most important, effectively. The book covers the basics of English grammar, punctuation, and spelling; proper forms of writing; and conventions of language usage. The authors clearly explain how to apply those basics to general forms of written communication (memos, letters, and e-mails) as well as more specific documents (newsletters, proposals, budget justifications, and rules) used in the public sector. Each chapter provides real-life examples and exercises to help readers apply the guidelines to their everyday writing. This book is ideal for anyone in the public sector who wants a quick, easy, and accessible guide to brush up on writing basics, improve essential writing skills, and successfully communicate with a variety of audiences.
