Definition of Voice: Voice shows the writer’s personality. The writing has a sound different from everyone else’s. It contains feelings and emotions so that it does not sound like an encyclopedia article. The reader should be able to sense the sincerity and honesty of the writer. The writer should be writing from the heart. The language should bring the topic to life for the reader. The voice should be appropriate for the topic, purpose and audience of the paper. How to Put Your Own Voice into Your Writing: Voice isn’t as hard as it seems. Just be you. Otherwise, the voice won’t be your own. Think of your audience. Your voice changes as your audience changes. For example, the way you tell your friends you wrecked your mother’s car is not the same way you would tell your mother. If you feel that you have no personal connection to the reader, pretend you are writing for your best friend—the one you can tell anything. Think of your topic.
