Defining a Project as a Writer

Please read the following w2 openings:

  • Sydney Dennis, “Fifty Shades of Controversy”
  • Sean Bates, “Talent vs. Skill”
  • Christina Capobianco, “Her Image”
  • Maya Hall, “A Trail With No End”
  • Lyndsay Lawler, “The Parasite of a Woman’s Mind”

Then jot down some notes that will help you respond to the following questions:

  • How does the writer define a question or issue they plan to explore in their essay? That is, what does it seem the essay will be about?
  • How does the writer suggest the approach or angle they will take on this topic? What sort of tone or perspective do they set?
