LETTER WRITING TIPS

(aka: Getting the Attention of Bureaucrats and Politicians)

By Del Albright, BlueRibbon Ambassador

“You can’t convert a snake into a statesman by simply snipping his fangs; the instinct to bite will always be there!”

How on earth do you capture the attention of a bureaucrat so that your 4x4 letter doesn’t end up in the proverbial “stack” of unread letters? Perhaps it’s not fair to say unread; let’s say “sort of read but unheeded.”
