Tips For Writing a Persuasive Essay:

  • Use a pleasant and reasonable tone in your essay. Sarcasm and name-calling weaken an argument. Logic and fairness will help to keep it strong.
  • Make your best argument your last argument.
  • Select your words carefully, have them evoke an image. Persuasion is about appealing to all the emotions of the reader. The use of adjectives and logic will convey a vivid picture and will make the reader believe you and that you write as an authority on the subject.
  • No personal pronouns and no I think, I feel, I believe as these phrases all weaken your perspective because the reader is less likely to think you are writing from fact than fiction.
  • No personal experiences unless they are generic meaning everyone has them and can relate to them and they convey a vivid and immediate image
