Voice is the je ne sais quoi of spirited writing. It separates brochures and brilliance, memo and memoir, a ship's log and The Old Man and the Sea.

To cultivate voice, you must listen for the music of language-the vernacular, the syntactic tics, the cadences.More Constance Hale quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

What's the language of the global village? How can we keep pace with technology without getting bogged down in buzzwords? Is it possible to write about machines without losing a sense of humanity and poetry?More Constance Hale quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
