Tips From the Insiders: How to Write a Political Speech
You're running for class president. You're going to a City Council meeting to talk your neighbors out of turning a park into a parking lot. You've just been named manager of the New York Yankees and you need to face the press. You're presenting your theories to an international gathering of scientists.
You're the Chief Executive Officer of a major corporation, and you need to make your annual address to stockholders. What do you say? How do you say it? Where do you start? And how can you get some help? The Insiders are in the business of helping their employers persuade others to support their ideas.
As Rock Brower told us, "Always write something you believe for someone you believe in," especially if that someone is yourself. All the Insiders told us that their advice for Presidents would be the same as it would be for class treasurers — win your audience's confidence, get to your point quickly, and make that point clearly, because many listeners may only take away a "sound bite" a memorable, catchy, 8-tosecond excerpt from your speech.
Get to the Point — Quick! You can't start a speech until you are sure of your central point — the idea you need the audience to remember, even if they remember nothing else. First, your theme should be simple enough that it can be expressed in one sentence. There are really only a few ideas an audience is going to grasp and remember.
People have done research on how much people remember from a speech, and it's amazingly little. You know, in a speech people can't look back if they miss something, like they can in a book.

And you always want to know what your bite is, your sound bite. It should be snappy but clearly connected to your central idea, not just an unrelated one-liner. Make it Look Easy After deciding on a theme, you have to consider the tone of your speech. Every step of the way, the Insiders said, you must remember that what you're writing will be read aloud, not on a page. A speech must be appropriate for the size and location of your audience, as well as for its familiarity with your topic.
Also, successful speeches have a conversational tone, in the hope that people will almost forget that what they're hearing is a prepared text.
Always remember you're writing a speech, not an essay. Your points have to be clearer and your sentences have to be shorter, because people can understand a lot more complex things when they're reading than when they're listening.
Write like people talk.
In a speech draft, you'll see a lot of things English teachers would be horrified at -- sentence fragments, no verbs -- much more the way people talk than the formal way they write. So it helps a lot if you always read your speech out loud while you're working on it. Make 'em Laugh Now you know what you want to say and how you want to say it. But how should your speech begin?
The opening lines of a speech are critical to its success, the Insiders said. You always want to establish some kind of rapport with the audience first.
