Persuasive Essay

Persuasive essays are essays meant to persuade readers to adopt an opinion or take a side using both facts and emotional appeals. In support of an argument or cause, persuasive essays can include moral and emotional reasoning to connect to the reader.

For example, a persuasive essay about the previous topic of companies including wellness packages in employee benefits may include appeals to employers’ satisfaction with providing an extra perk for their employees or employers’ responsibility to ensure their employees have access to features that keep them healthy. Additionally, the essay may discuss how excited and grateful employees are for the new benefits.
