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.
