An interesting angle that captures a single dominant impression about the subject.

Write a profile

Develop a comprehensive and detailed 2 to 3 typed (double-spaced) profile of a person, place, or event that would be interesting to a general audience.

Organization

At a minimum, your profile should include the following elements:

A subject (a person, organization, place, or event) that allows you to explore an issue, idea, or theme that is interesting to you and your readers.

An interesting angle that captures a single dominant impression about the subject.

A description of the subject that allows readers to visualize and imagine it.

Background information that describes the setting or social context of the subject.

Anecdotes that reveal the character of the subject through actions and dialogue.

A main point, or central theme about the subject that goes beyond the surface and factual details to address larger questions.

Sentences that are complete and relatively error free.

Thesis Statement

But where does my thesis statement go? The placement of your main point (thesis) depends on the type of profile you are writing. In a descriptive profile, you can state your main point in the introduction. Tell your readers up front what you are trying to show about your subject. In a narrative profile, you probably won’t state your main point in the introduction. Instead, you should wait until the conclusion to reveal your overall point. Something rather open is fine on this essay (such as, “My grandfather is one of the strangest people you’ll ever meet.”)

The Conclusion

Profiles shouldn’t just end; they should leave an impression. Because endings, like beginnings, get special attention from readers, your conclusion should include information, ideas, or images that leave readers with a sense of the point (or thesis) you want to make. Conclude with a strong impression that will stay with your readers.
