Descriptive writing


In this genre, the writer’s goal is to make the reader experience the information. The writer incorporates the senses, such as sound, sight, and even aroma, in conveying a description. Craft a well-written essay describing a place you have visited. Henry David Thoreau once stated, “There is no such thing as pure objective observation. Your observation, to be interesting, i.e. to be significant, must be subjective” (qtd. in Stewart). Recall the observations that you have made at a certain place (for example, the ocean), focusing on sounds, smells, and even the local “flair and flavor” of the place.

Criteria for This Assignment

Length and Formatting Requirements

  • Two to three pages (800 to 1000 words), double spaced
  • Times New Roman, 12-point font

Content Requirements

  • Use vivid language. Charles Dickens, known for his descriptive writing effectively uses evocative language to captivate his reading audience. Take note of his use of descriptive language in this excerpt from Great Expectations:

    “This bleak place overgrown with nettles was the churchyard;…the dark flat wilderness beyond the churchyard, intersected with dykes and mounds and gates, with scattered cattle feeding on it, was the marshes;…the low leaden line beyond was the river; and…the distant savage lair from which the wind was rushing, was the sea” (Dickens).

  • Organize your paper into three parts: introduction, body, and conclusion. The introduction should include a controlling statement, or thesis statement, that states the main or central idea of the paragraph.

As you work on the assignment, please review the note on plagiarism if you have any questions as to what you may or may not use from the presented materials and/or outside sources in your paper.
