6Persuasive Writing (to persuade) Persuasive writing takes a stand on a debatable topic. Unlike its brother, expository writing, expressive writing does much more than simply explain a topic.

This type of writing uses logical evidence, plays off of the readers emotions and morals/beliefs in order to prove its point.
