Tips for Writing Request-Letter :
Most organizations try to grant the requests they can. The key to getting your requests honored is to provide positive incentive to the receiving party. This kind of letter should begin with your exact request. Provide as much flexibility in the choices you give them to satisfy your interests. Support your request with as many positive compliments as possible. Remember, the first line recipient is usually a lower level person who deals with trouble for a living. If you are nice, you go into the A pile, not the discard B pile.
Tips & Hints :
1. Be nice and be supportive.
· Start out with your exact request.
· Be nice and supportive.
· Demonstrate knowledge of the situation, the place, and/or the people after you have made clear what you want.
2. Be clear and flexible.

3. Be short and positive.
