3. The Differences Of Each Types Of Writing

The expository essay is an informative piece of writing that presents a
balanced analysis of a topic. In an expository essay, the writer explains or
defines a topic, using facts, statistics, and examples. Expository writing
encompasses a wide range of essay variations, such as the comparison and
contrast essay, the cause and effect essay, and the how to or process essay.

Persuasive Essays: Convince Me

While like an expository essay in its presentation of facts, the goal of the
persuasive essay is to convince the reader to accept the writers point of view
or recommendation. The writer must build a case using facts and logic, as
well as examples, expert opinion, and sound reasoning. The writer should

present all sides of the argument, but must be able to communicate clearly
and without equivocation why a certain position is correct.

should try to involve the reader by making the story as vivid as possible. The
fact that narrative essays are usually written in the first person helps engage
the reader. I sentences give readers a feeling of being part of the story. A
well-crafted narrative essay will also build towards drawing a conclusion or
making a personal statement.
