Descriptive Essay

Write a 500-750 word essay using description as the chief method of development. Follow the guidelines for formatting as described in Notes on Writing a Descriptive Essay.

Writing Assignment

Purpose: to inform
Method of Development: description
For a topic for description, see the list at the end of Chapter 3, Description, in The Longman Reader. Choose one, or notify me through Messages if you have a topic of your own that you would prefer to use. Be sure that you are writing a descriptive essay, not a narrative.

Reminders

  1. Brainstorm for topics.
  2. Accumulate as many details as you can about your topic, and then sift through them, discarding those that are irrelevant, weak, or unrelated to the impression you would like to convey.
  3. Organize your ideas.
  4. Use vivid language and varied sentence structure.
  5. Check the syllabus for due dates.

Writing Approach

As your text points out, “ Description can be a supportive technique that develops part of an essay, or it can be the dominant technique used throughout an essay” (79). In this essay assignment, description will be the dominant technique used to develop a distinct impression of your topic. Remember that description must appeal to the senses: taste, touch sound, sight, smell. While you need not appeal to every sense in your essay, be sure to give the reader enough description so that he/she can be a part of your topic’s development. You may certainly use figurative language in your descriptions – simile, metaphor, personification, etc. In any case, be aware of your audience (your classmates) and your tone. Your choice of words may greatly influence your reader’s impression of your topic. Be careful to present your topic as you would like it to be interpreted.

Whether you use Microsoft Word or another program, save your document as .rtf (rich text format). Doing so ensures I will be able to open and read your document. If you do not have access to Word, you may download Open Office for free at http://www.openoffice.org/.

General Guidelines

  • Title page and Outline
  • Type your paper on a computer and print it out on standard, white 8.5 x 11-inch paper.
  • Double-space the text of your paper, and use a legible font (e.g. Times New Roman). Whatever font you choose, MLA recommends that the regular and italics type styles contrast enough that they are recognizable one from another. The font size should be 12 pt.
  • Leave only one space after periods or other punctuation marks (unless otherwise instructed by your instructor).
  • Set the margins of your document to 1 inch on all sides.
  • Indent the first line of paragraphs one half-inch from the left margin. MLA recommends that you use the Tab key as opposed to pushing the Space Bar five times.
  • Create a header that numbers all pages consecutively in the upper right-hand corner, one-half inch from the top and flush with the right margin. (Note: Your instructor may ask that you omit the number on your first page. Always follow your instructor’s guidelines.)
  • Use italics throughout your essay for the titles of longer works and, only when absolutely necessary, providing emphasis.
  • If you have any endnotes, include them on a separate page before your Works Cited page. Entitle the section Notes (centered, unformatted).
