250 Word Paper - Process Writing

Sometimes keeping our most important thoughts short is the most difficult part of English writing. When I was in college I was assigned a paper that could only be two pages long. It meant that I had to get straight to my point and show my point of view very quickly, but without being too cut and dry.


You have only 250 words, no more, and the choice of one of the following topics. MLA Format. Printed out to be handed in. You need an introduction, body, and conclusion. It needs to be a full developed paper, not just a paragraph.

You are required to have one source minimum. You need a works cited page (does not count towards your word count) and an intext citation for a quote/research you pull from your source. Refer back to our MLA lessons on the blog to help you.

Your header does not count towards your word count.

Your assignment is due: 6/8 (Two weeks)


Pick one of the following topics to PERSUADE me to believe.
