When you are asked to write an essay, it doesn’t mean that you cannot express your thoughts creatively. An essay shouldn’t be boring or too formal. As a writer, your first priority is to make sure that you are keeping your audience in mind and writing for them and to them. That means grabbing and keeping their attention so that they want to read every word.

This is exactly why the essay hook exists and is such an important tool.

An essay hook is the first few sentences of your essay that attempts to grab the reader’s attention.

The first few sentences of your introduction is important as it helps the reader decide whether they want to continue reading your essay or not.

Here are some essay hook examples!
