Descriptive Profile Essay

Write a profile of a person, a place, or an event. All are interesting and challenging options.

For a personal profile, choose a person to interview. You’ll want to find an interesting “angle” for this person rather than write a full biographical sketch. You’ll want to quote your person throughout your essay, but you’ll also want to describe the person’s appearance, body language, and demeanor, as well as his or her environment.

For a place profile, visit a place which intrigues you. Take your time describing the environment. Don’t forget that people are an important part of many environments. Find an -angle’ for your profile, so your reader is left with a dominant impression of the place. If people are present, you must quote at least one person in your profile. This can be “overheard” conversation or a quote from an informal interview.
