Email- Writing Assignment


Write either a solicited or unsolicited e-mail inquiry to a company or organization asking for information regarding service, products, or expertise. Copy the entire e-mail inquiry (including the To:, From:, and Subject Line) into a Microsoft Word document and submit it through the link.

Try to write an inquiry e-mail that you can actually send out.  If you need to have this information anyway, why not write the inquiry for a real situation that benefits you and that you get credit for writing?
