Introduction: How has genre, purpose, and audience worked together to convey an effective message? Purpose determines a genre of writing which can then determine the audience. If the reader is your intended audience, then it is highly likely that you will convey an effective message. The way one expresses their writing, whether that is with pathos, logos, or ethos, determines their purpose. Any writing that is done has a purpose. Some writings might even have several purposes. The purpose of writing is to express oneself, to entertain, to communicate, or to persuade others. Not all texts are written for just anyone that knows how to read. If you do not understand what you are reading you will not get the message that the writer is trying to convey.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
