The First Few Steps:
When choosing to write a review, it is important to decide what type of review you are going to write. There are multiple different types of reviews out there, so you want to make sure you pick the right one for you. Some examples of different types of reviews include: Film, hotel, restaurant, hotel, book and theatre.
When you have chosen which type of review you would like to write, it is time to start thinking about it's basic structure. Start to outline what each paragraph will contain, and also decide the style you are going to write it in. If you are going to review a film or a theatre show, it is important to watch what you are reviewing more than once, so that you have a good amount of knolwedge and look deeper than just your first impressions. For a food or restaurant review however, it is also important to keep it factual and make sure to include things such as location, prices and presentation.

When writing a review, it is also important to understand the audience you are writing for. If you are writing for a much younger audience, they will need much more basic information and background on the subject of your review, as opposed to readers of a more experienced level. When publishing a review, you should think about where you would like it to be published. Reviews can appear in many different places such as newspapers, magazines, online articles and local journals and newsletters.
