In a policy memo, you will usually write from the perspective of a particular role. Your goal is typically to support a recommendation of some kind, so the language needs to be succinct and persuasive. You may be able to use bullet points to present ideas concisely, and you may not need to provide much outside research. For more detailed information, see our resource on writing policy memos.
