Persuasive writing is a style of writing that aims to convince a reader to take up the bone of contention as a challenge. Most forms of writing persuade a reader to do something. The difference between the two is that, persuasive writing is direct, while others chose euphemistic ways to convince a reader.
Persuasive writing is an excellent way to learn about certain issues from the 'for' and 'against' angles. These topics not only help a student to understand a subject in depth, but also provide an opportunity to draw a judgment and make a point.
With various subjects to write about, pick a subject that interests you for this task, so that you avert boredom and monotony.
