An academic essay is a focused piece of writing that develops an idea or argument using evidence, analysis, and interpretation. Writing an academic essay means fashioning a coherent set of ideas into an argument. Because essays are essentially linear—they offer one idea at a time—they must present their ideas in the order that makes most sense to a reader. Successfully structuring an essay means attending to a reader’s logic. (Abrams, 2000).
