Persuasive writing is a type of writing that is non-fiction. The purpose for this type of writing is to encourage the reader of the writing to take a course of action. The writer's job is to sway the opinion of the reader, by expressing their own. There are some things that the writer must do to be successful at writing persuasively.

One of the things they must do is present their argument. The argument must be rooted in fact so that the reader can be convinced. Normally, persuasive writing is taking a stand against something else. Examples of persuasive writing can be an editorial or a movie review.

Persuasive writing is non-fiction writing, which serves the purpose of encouraging the reader to take action. It is the writer's ambition to sway someone's opinion and to express their own. When writing persuasively, the writer must present a series of facts that will convince the readers of your point. This type of writing is also called argumentative writing. It usually takes a stand against something.

A few examples of persuasive writing include editorials, movie reviews, and other non- fiction persuasive pieces. Another goal of persuasive writing is to incite the readers to respond to the particular piece you are writing, and this inspires conversation amongst the readers.
