What is Persuasive Writing?
Persuasive writing, used in an argument essay, utilizes logic and reason to show that one idea is more legitimate than another idea. It attempts to persuade a reader to adopt a certain point of view or to take a particular action. The argument must always use sound reasoning and solid evidence by stating facts, giving logical reasons, using examples, and quoting experts.

The Library Homepage is the gateway to numerous library services for Palm Beach State College's Distance Learners. From this website you may search our online catalog for print books, retrieve tipsheets for research projects, and link to services provided by the library.
