Writing persuasively is about convincing others to your way of thinking.
'People are usually more convinced by reasons they discovered themselves than by those found out by others.' Blaise Pascal, 17th-century French mathematician, physicist, inventor and philosopher.
This quote from Pascal illustrates why the art of persuasive writing can be so difficult to master. No one likes to be thought of as easily persuadable. And yet so many writing tasks require the ability to persuade others.
This quiz tests your knowledge of the techniques and skills used in this form of writing.
