It is probably difficult to find a person who did not have to work on writing at least once in his life no matter when and where. Meanwhile, it is well known that students do not particularly like this type of work. To the question “Do you like to write an essay?” In the audience of 50-60 people, hardly a dozen hands rise. Schools still do not pay enough attention to the essay work. As a result, the percentage of essays written at home for school is inevitably higher than the actual school essays written in the classroom.

The success of the work on writing is largely dependent on a correct understanding of the topic, and an understanding of what is required for you. This will help to avoid the most unpleasant assessment. It is ridiculous to think that if the topic is about one writer, then it’s all the same to write anything you want about the topic given. To avoid this annoying inattention, you need to think about each word included in the topic. Such thinking immediately limits the range of problems, helps to choose the form, prompts the choice of material about what directly relates to the topic, and that only indirectly affects it.

The choice of topics is associated with the selection of genre of essays. The most common is a writing-argument in the form of a literary-critical article. However, it is is not the only possible type. Let’s name some others:

  • the author’s imaginary dialogue with the writer or literary hero, or, conversely, the hero’s appeal to the readers of the book,
  • a letter to a friend or girlfriend with impressions of a book read,
  • dialogue-dispute with an imaginary interlocutor,
  • a sheet of diary; the story of the book about his fate
  • interview with full exposure,
  • verse form, etc.

However, one should not forget that the essay should be, above all, an evidence-based argument on a given topic. Within the framework of the above-mentioned genre forms, this is much more difficult to do. Therefore, in order to write a scholarship essay, it is enough to follow our recommendations and be careful.
