GREEN CHRISTIAN RECOMMENDED WRITING STYLE (from 2017)
E = Engage your audience. Get their attention with a dramatic fact or short statement.
P = State the problem. Present the causes of the problem you just introduced.
How widespread or serious is the problem?
I = Inform about the solutions to the problem.
Develop your solution by giving examples of how and where it has worked,
how it is proven and cost-effective and how it has benefited the poorest. You could cite a recent study or report or tell a first-person account of how the solution has impacted you or others you know.
C = Call to Action. Now that you’ve engaged your audience, presented the problem and informed them of a solution, you need to let them know what you want them to do about it.
