Hi Everyone!! This article will share Notice Writing Format – How To Write a Notice.
A notice is a short and concise piece of writing, displayed in order to convey factual details like news and information. It is a method of communication which is to the point and is used to convey a message to a large audience. It is mostly advertised by being posted on notice or display boards, and in a few cases, are published in newspapers or magazines. In one of my previous posts, I have shared the Informal Letter Writing Format so, you can check that post as well.
Notice Writing Format – How To Write a Notice
The format of a notice should include:
- Name of the institution/issuing authority
- The issuing date of the notice.
- Body of the notice
- The name of the person or organisation issuing the notice.
- The date, time and venue, in case of an event or invitation.
Features of a Notice
- It is always written in a box.
- The title must be attractive. Increase the appeal of the notice by using bold letters, exclamations, words and phrases.
- Include all the points and all questions such as, when, where, how, what time, etc. must be answered.
- As it is a formal document so, the language should be formal.
- The sentences must be short and grammatically correct.
- The body of the message must not exceed fifty words.
- Write in the third person. Words like ‘I’ and ‘We’ should be avoided.
Notice Writing Format
- The name of the organisation and place of issue aligned at the centre.
- Write ‘NOTICE’ in the centre.
- The date of the issue aligned to the left-hand margin.
- After the date, the title/subject of the content of the notice must be written, aligned centre.
- The content of the notice should follow immediately after the title and must be brief and specific, aligned to the left-hand margin.
- To end the notice, the name of the issuing person or authority must be placed aligned with the left-hand margin followed by the designation of the respective person.
- Lastly, the notice must always be written inside a box.
