What is a writer’s voice? The conversation.

September 22, 2011

A friend of mine asked me, “Does our mutual friend M____ have a writing voice?”

I answered, “No.”

“Then not everyone has a voice?”

“Right.”

“So what exactly is voice?”

“It is the writer’s sound.”

“Well then, everyone has it.”

“Nope. Some writers do not have a sound.”

“I want to hear other people’s definition.”

“Go for it.”
