By using many different poetic devices you can achieve a high grade. By using more ambitious vocabulary will help and if you can, 100% use a thesaurus. As well as vocab, grammar such as parenthesis, semi colons, colons and ellipses look good also. vary your sentence length but make sure to not make it too simple or complex and if you add a minor sentence (1-3 words) it will look good. just make sure not to make it overkill, my English teacher hates it.

When writing, make sure not to overly describe certain things, and use the 5 senses when doing so to give more atmosphere.
I actually can't remember the name of it right now, but a few years ago one of my teachers told me that one-word standalone sentences are quite impactful as well.
