Why is it important to write well?
Writing well for any purpose is the key to communicating exactly what you mean and in the precise tone you choose. Poor writing skills can lead to misunderstandings which could be costly in some way and/or which do not enhance personal or professional relationships. What is said in written communication is so important that it is often a basis for legal matters, which is why we say "put that in writing" or "get it in writing."
