You have 90 minutes to compose an original, well‐developed expository essay. Expository writing explains, proves,
or explores a topic in a balanced way, allowing the argument and the evidence given to be the deciding factor in
the paper. Descriptive or narrative passages may be used to illustrate or reinforce an idea or point that is being
explained, but must be clearly subordinate or incidental to the exposition. All writing should pertain and develop
the prompt. A title is required, and essays submitted without a title will be disqualified.
