Episode Details

Writers choose their language and tone depending on the audience. In this program, students, teachers, and writers, including Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Richard Aregood and novelist David Guterson, dissect both the esoteric and mechanical aspects of creating a writer's voice. Frank McCourt's reading from his novel, Angela's Ashes provides an example of effective use of voice.
