Personal Essay




The personal essay can be anything you want it to be. It may be imaginative, informative, persuasive, or whatever. It is less formal, more relaxed, but can still be serious. It is more subjective, and the writer does not hide it. It still may have solid structure, but it can sometimes ramble somewhat so care needs to be taken in that respect. Often, it is as though the writer speaks to the reader directly, showing the nature of who he is, simply telling them what he thinks.

Examples may be the opinion pieces in newspapers written by followers of a particular political party, journalistic ramblings in magazines that state subjective preference for one product over another, or individual websites and blogs, etc.
