Your Memoirs, in Your Own Voice

Nan Barnes

Writing experts, professional writers, and literary critics love to talk about a writer’s “voice”. What they are really talking about is a writer’s style; the syntax and word choice that make the author’s writing unique. Writers can work for years to “find their voice”, if they ever do.

Novelist / writing teacher Jane Burroway explains what happens when a talented writer succeeds. “An author’s voice is a particularly recognizable style and tone that lets us know, as if we’d picked up the phone, that this is so and so talking.”

We explore this topic in more depth on our website. In Your Own Voice: Telling Stories Naturally explores some of the ways you can develop your voice as a writer.

That’s why the editors at Stories To Tell advocate for oral story telling and provide a story recording system to our authors. As much as we love writing, we know that effortlessly told stories can result in a better written book.

You have been telling stories all your life in your natural voice. Story recording captures what’s unique and special about your style of storytelling.  And it doesn’t take years to learn how to do it!
