TOPIC: Writing: Report writing

CONTENT

A report refers to a spoken or written account of an event. Thus, report writing is an act of presenting an account of an event that has taken place in a written form. A report can either be formal or informal.

A formal report is one which is presented as a formal document giving details of an event. E.g.; robbery, an accident, the proceedings of a meeting etc. To write a good report, one must:
