Preparing and Writing a Speech
i. Purpose- speeches can be written based on a specific reason or purpose such as explaining a new technology to a group of farmers.

Once the speech writer knows the purpose, audience and/or occasion for the speech they can then select an appropriate topic.
i. Choose a topic that interests you.

iii. Choose a topic of interest to you audience.
iv. Brainstorm with a list of topics and write down key words.
Gather information from a variety of materials, books, internet, personal interviews, etc.
Write down your ideas including, name of source, web address, page number and author.
Create an outline to help you organize your ideas.
Write the speech the way you talk, but do not use slang terms.
Be enthusiastic, smile, use gestures, have good eye contact, and be sincere when presenting your speech.
