|In writing, voice refers to the way you speak to the reader.
It involves the level of language and your word choice. Your voice will
depend on the topic, the audience, and the purpose. For example, when you
write a letter to a friend, you are casual and relaxed, and you may use
informal language or slang. However, when you write a college essay for
your professor, you will use more formal language.
Your voice could be informal, angry, excited, serious, funny, formal, persuasive, sincere, comforting, honest, apologetic, factual, simple, friendly, concerned, or a combination of these.
