Q. How do I write in third person?


Writing in third-person means using he, she, it or they, but never I, we, or you.

Students should use third person most of the time when writing an APA style paper because it helps the reader focus on the content and the evidence on the topic rather than on the personal experiences of the writer.

If you would like personalized tutoring in third person writing, make an appointment online.
