Your experience with these prose forms is ideal preparation for writing for publication.
This form, employed when reporting about an event or an incident, describing an experience, or telling a story, is the basic mode in journalistic writing.

(Travel writing, actually, is a hybrid of all three forms of essay writing.) Many magazine articles, for example, and a number of nonfiction books, are basically profiles of one of these types of entities, and fiction writing, of course, is a form of narrative, albeit one that is invented or based on a real-life subject.
This type of writing will not contain overly descriptive language or advanced vocabulary.
The sentences should be simple and to the point and shorter sentences are better for the reader.
In either case, the writer begins with a thesis, or statement to be proven, summarizes the position (or the plot or theme of a work of art), and provides further detail as necessary to amplify the essay’s points.
An essential component of a formal persuasive essay is a balanced discussion of an opposing viewpoint, while an informal review might include a mention of what an artist was attempting to accomplish by performing or creating and, for the sake of courtesy, could refer to how the artist succeeded in part even if the reviewer believes that the work is ultimately unsatisfactory.

Writing your recollections of something that happened to you is the basis of travel writing and similar content.
