How to Write a Congratulation Letter

by WriteExpress Staff Writers
  1. Write the congratulation letter as soon as possible
    This is your chance to notice their special occasion. People love to receive a letter after a fortunate event takes place.

  2. State the specific occasion
    At the beginning, express what motivated you to write your letter.

  3. Express praise and approval
    Outline the reader's accomplishments and the good it has or will do.

  4. Keep your congratulation letter simple and concise
    Usually under one page in length is enough—You want them to read it!

  5. Be positive
    Don't include any negative comments or unhappy news.

  6. Don't suggest that the fortunate event should benefit the letter-writer
    Even if your motive is to win a customer, don't let them know.

  7. Don't exaggerate your congratulatory words
    Your letter may seem sarcastic or mocking.

  8. Edit your letter
    Check for correct spelling, structure, grammar, and punctuation.

  9. Wait some time and proof-read your letter again before sending it
    Most writers find errors or better way to express their thoughts.
