Essay writing is a dynamic process that is usually not linear in sequence. The sequence involves steps such as preparation, research and writing; however, it is likely that you will move back and forth between the various steps involved as you assess your position in regard to the question and your information gathering. The product of the essay writing process is the essay. An essay is a well researched and logically structured answer to a particular question, or questions, often presented as an argument. An essay provides you with an opportunity to articulate your ideas, but in a certain way: using formal academic style and the conventional structure of an essay. Conventionally, an essay includes an introduction, a body and a conclusion.
