Tip: Know Your Audience

Who is your audience?

Before you write your essay, it is important to know who your audience is.

  • What is their background?
  • How much do they already know about your topic?
  • What other information do they need to know?

These questions are important, as they will help you focus your writing on reaching a target audience. If you are writing a science paper, and your audience has a scientific background, than you need to use vocabulary and language that is familiar to them.  But if you are writing a science paper to an audience that does not have a scientific background, then you need to make sure to write in a way that they understand.
