What is voice?
Voice is how a person sounds in writing. It is the words they use and how they arrange the words. When you read something and you can tell who wrote it, or what kind of person wrote it, then the writing has strong voice. Voice creates a picture of the writer in your mind. Different kinds of people naturally use different language to convey ideas. Imagine these people all are asked to write a brief description of their weekend. What would they sound like? Remember that voice is not just the content of the writing, but what kinds of words, descriptions and imagesare used by the writer.
SBM photos and VOICE.
Below are three photos from SBM. working alone or in pairs, create new conversations between the characters, using the voice of each particular character (Chris, Ace, Vern and Teddy are here). Remember you must BE THEM on paper. Your goal is to convincingly capture the voice of the characters. Assume that these are “lost” scenes from the film, and new dialogue must be created. Please have this complete before class on Wednesday. You may type or handwrite.
