A Question of (Writing) Voice: How to Strengthen It, How to Shape It

cp-strengthen-writing-voice

Sonia Simone got a fascinating question on Twitter: How do I handle a mismatch between my writing voice and my company’s writing voice? Is there any way to reconcile?

Voice is one of those things writers obsess over — how to make it stronger, clearer, more distinctive. Voice is what makes your writing different from anyone else’s — while still getting your point across.

Your writing voice can be your greatest strength as a content creator, or your greatest barrier to successful communication.

In this 16-minute episode of Confessions of a Pink-Haired Marketer, host Sonia Simone talks about:

  • Her thoughts on how to make your voice stronger
  • How to use a journal (Sonia’s preference is paper & ink) to build your writing voice
  • That line between being professional and just being dull
  • The role of a strong voice when you’re writing for an organization
  • How editing makes you 100 times more brilliant than you really are
  • The difference (as Sonia sees it) between healthy controversy and tiresome drama
