Project #46128 - Profile Essay

Profile Essay Assignment Sheet

Profiles are written portraits – of people, places, events, or other things. We find profiles of 

celebrities, travel destinations, and offbeat festivals in magazines and newspapers, or radio and 

TV. A profile presents a subject in an entertaining way that conveys its significance, showing us 

something or someone that we may not have known existed or that we see every day but don’t

know much about. 

Assignment:

Write an essay about an intriguing person, group of people, place, or activity in your community. 

Observe your subject closely, and then present what you have learned in a way that both informs 

and engages readers.

General Guidelines:

The subject may be something unusual, or it may be something ordinary shown in an intriguing 

way. Whether you are writing about a person, place, or event, you need to spend time observing 

and interacting with your subject. With a person, interacting means watching and conversing. 

With a place or event, interacting may mean visiting and participating, although sometimes you 

may gather even more information by playing the role of silent observer. You need to include 

details that bring your subject to life. These include sensory images, figurative language, 

dialogue, and anecdotes. Choose details that show rather than tell, that let your audience see and 

hear your subject rather than merely read an abstract description of it.

Requirements:

The essay’s assigned length is 1000-1200 words. Be sure that all margins measure one inch and 

that you use the Times New Roman 12 point font. Also, follow MLA formatting guidelines 

regarding heading, page numbering, etc.
