VOICE The third element of the Writing Traits
How can you read VOICE? Voice is the author’s fingerprint on the page. The writing sounds just like the author. The reader knows the feelings and opinions of the author.
Can I hear your voice? When a paper is full of voice… it makes the reader feel something. shocked, upset, excited, giggly, or scared sounds like the author enjoys writing. you feel like the author is talking to you. the author is not afraid to say what he/she feels. you want to read the piece to someone else.
Don’t be afraid to let your voice be heard! Share your thoughts and opinions When you write pretend like you are talking to the reader Don’t hide your true self Have fun when you write
