You will have heard many times about the importance of choosing the right topic for your essay at college. You get the topic right and you give yourself a serious chance at producing some quality writing. And never has this been so true than when you are writing an informative essay. You see the point of an informative essay is that you are informing the reader about something. And if you have a passion for this subject or if you have a bank of knowledge about it already then you are in the prime position to write with confidence, with strength and with conviction.

Don't forget the basics of essay writing apply equally to an informative essay. Getting the topic spot on is vitally important. But then so too are things like a detailed and correct outline or plan, supporting evidence to back up any argument you make or point you wish to prove in your essay and of course your ability to proofread and edit the essay once you've finished the first draft.
