In writing, voice expresses the narrator's or author’s emotions, attitude, tone, and point of view -- and it directly contributes to the tone and mood of the piece. Listen to other writers' voices -- and develop your own. WRITE a creative anecdote (a mini-story or poem of just 5-10 lines) using a voice that clearly shows a mood, tone, personality. AND... if you want, try rewriting the mini-story using a different voice, without changing any of the facts or events. Notice how even slight variations in voice can change the story.
