QUESTION
Can someone please describe to me exactly what a Persuasive Essay is?
Ok, so I know it’s an essay where you need to persuade someone to share your opinions on something. But, are you supposed to include photos? Examples? Quotes?

Also, can it be written in a casual style (with rhetorical questions etc.)?

Thanks everyone! <3 ANSWER a persuasive essay is an essay where you are trying to influence the reader's opinion... photos can be included, imagine if you were reading an article about animal cruelty, a photo is only going to make the piece stronger. Rhetorical questions have a good impact in essays, e.g. an essay on obesity - 'would you like your children to be like this?'. Facts and statistics are also a good thing, use them! A casual style can be appropriate, just make sure that it is strong, and gets the impression you'd want. Get somebody around you to read it, it REALLY helps! Good Luck 🙂 Clo xx
