"Self, Subject Positions, Authenticity, Voice and Identity"
Some DATA


To thine own self be true and it follows, as the night the day, that thou 
canst be false to no man.

[T]he fundamental quality of good writing [is] the presence of the 
individual writers, a presence made visible by what I choose to call an 
authentic voice.- Donald C. Stewart (1994)

Academic Voices and the Challenges of Tutoring.  Price, Bob  Nurse 
Education Today 238p628-37 Nov 2003  Abstract. . . A key theme was 
students' development of academic voice in the support relationship with 
tutors. This voice helped them manage learning and determine what kinds of 
help tutors should give. (Contains 31 references.) (SK)

Literacy Development for Students with No VoiceScheme and Schema.  Russell, 
Ann.  Reading Improvement 403 104-09 Fall 2003  Abstract Provides a review 
of current literature with emphasis on the issues of student empowerment, 
early intervention strategies, and cultural issues in education which may 
stimulate solutions for restructuring literacy education in response to the 
No Child Left Behind legislation of 2001. Notes that reading failure for 
speakers of nonstandard English dialect is related more to cultural issues 
than language differences. (SG)

36-65 Sum 2003  Abstract A case study of how students have a voice in a

cooperative adult-student relationships, and the development of greater 
responsibility and citizenship. An appendix contains the school 
constitution. (MLF)

2003
Abstract Collects primary pupils' views of themselves as writers and their 
preferences, attitudes and awareness of the source of their ideas in the 
context of England's National Literacy Strategy. Underlines the importance 
of listening to pupils' views about literacy, in order to create a more 
open dialogue about language and learning, and to negotiate the content of 
the curriculum in response to their perspectives. (SG)

Long Dumb VoicesReading Historical Fiction To Hear Silenced Women 
Speak.  Goldblatt, Patricia  MultiCultural Review 22   35-38, 40-42 Jun 2003
Abstract Discusses the silencing of girls in mixed-sex education, noting 
that a multitude of taught and untaught lessons reinforce established 
routines that maintain ritualistic and repressive hierarchies. Asserts that 
by establishing a body of literature, using forbidden words, and revealing 
forbidden tales that speak to, and not just about, women, myriad voices can 
emerge that announce women have something to say and will be heard. (SM)

The Voice of the People.  Hess, Frederick M.  American School Board Journal 
904   36-39 Apr 2003  Abstract Elected school boards' skeptical eyes can 
guard against bad management practices and ensure that different voices get 
heard. Problems with board governance are a product of too little 
democracy. A democratic reform strategy would make board elections 
partisan, hold them on the same day as elections for more prominent state 
or national offices, increase pay and support for board members, and repeal 
or restrict sunshine laws. (MLF)

Changing What Is TaughtHearing the Voices of the 
Underrepresented.  Nichols, Joyce Coleman  Innovative Higher Education v27 
n3 p195-208 Spr 2003  Abstract In 1991, policy makers at Florida State 
University made the decision to require all students to take multicultural 
courses to fulfill general education requirements. This article provides 
insights into the challenges that institutional policy makers face as they 
seek to change the curriculum to include the voices of those previously 
underrepresented. (EV)

Philip G. Rochford, Personal Success Coach In short, [William] Covey makes 
the point that to generate greatness you first have to find your own voice, 
and then inspire others to find their voice. To find your own voice Covey 
suggests that you bring together Your passion.  Your talent.  Your 
conscience.  The needs of your society and when these elements overlap into 
a common space it translates to your unique personal significance and 
manifests your own voice.

Marian WoodmanIn my present work, I am attempting to help women experience 
this in their own bodies, in their own souls. I take thirty women on 
ten-day intensives into a beautiful place in nature. Along with a voice 
person and bodyworker, we work with their dreams to open up their bodies 
and help them find their 
voices.  www.newtimes.org/issue/9901/99-01-woodman.html

Anwaar HusseinThe world in general, and the Iraqis in particular, should be 
grateful to the Americans for helping them find their own voice, attain 
their own freedom, and make their own way. This President is right 
indeed.  http//www.commondreams.org/views05/0402-29.htm

Sustainable globalization will not be possible if the people of Latin

Patrick GaleI can only strive for honesty, drawing on my own experience. 
I've been doing little else now for twenty years so at least have had time 
to try various methods on for size. . . .

I tend to view writing fiction as a kind of spiritual ventriloquism - a 
chance to lose myself in characters I make up and who are often terminally 
hetero.

I've always felt that reading is the best way to learn how to write. Find 
the sort of author you want to be. Copy them shamelessly. Take their work 
to pieces to find out how it gets its effects. Dare to improve on it. Very 
few of writers find their own voice immediately.

Or consider this breathtaking pronouncement from a U.K. licensing court in 
1950 A woman is not a person?

The Womens Movement, of course, put this statement and others like it, 
firmly and permanently in the rubbish bin. They did this by helping women 
to find their own voice. And this is where I suggest that advocacy for 
people with disabilities be firmly groundedin assisting people with 
disabilities find their own, unique voice.

Dina Friedman's Monthly Writing Advice
Vol. 1 # 4, September 2001 - Finding Your Own Voice

Writers, on the whole, are not ensemble players, but sometimes they forget 
that it's up to them to find their own voice. When asking for feedback, 
beware of trying to please others. Ask yourself, "does this information 
help me with MY vision of MY own work," or am I merely succumbing to 
someone else's vision or interpretation? A good reader will help you 
"midwife" your own voice more fully without imposing his or her own voice 
in the process. This is not to say that their feedback isn't valid.

FINDING YOUR VOICE
By Cynthia Sterling
             Ask any editor what he or she is looking for in a new writer 
and, nine times out of ten, the answer will be a fresh voice.Then ask those 
same editors to define voice and their answers will be variations of  I 
can't put it into words, but I'll know it when I see it.
             Webster's defines voice as distinction of form.Voice is what 
makes your writing distinct from any other author's. It's the unique way 
you put words on paper. Some voices are more distinctive than others. See 
if you can match the following examples to their authors. . . .
             Each of the above authors has a very distinctive voice. Their 
word choices, sentence structures, settings and characters are all 
hallmarks of their particular voices. . . .

             How do you find your own fresh voice that will have editors 
and readers clamoring for your work? Here are some things you may find 
helpful.  Turn off the internal editor. . . .  Take a look at some of your 
informal writing. . . .  Keep a journal. Journaling is an excellent way to 
develop your voice. . . .  Experiment with different styles. . . .  Write 
in first person. . .  .  Edit judiciously. Many people start to write with 
strong, unique voices, then make the mistake of editing the life out of 
their prose. . . . If beginning a sentence with and sounds right to you, 
don't change it because of a critique partner's objections or to correspond 
with a writing rule you read somewhere. . . .  Your decisions reflect your 
unique voice-the one editors are looking 
for.    http//www.hodrw.com/findvoice.htm

ReviewFinding Your VoiceHow to Put Personality in Your Writing, by Les 
Edgerton  AuthorSusan Peck
Original Publication Date in Love NotesAugust 2003
             Voice. Its a highly desirable yet elusive commodity. According 
to the insider buzz, editors and agents are diligently searching for 
authors with a fresh new voice. And nearly every writing teacher out there 
puts voice right up there with plot and characterization as an element we 
need to develop. We all recognize it when we read a story by an author who 
has a distinctive voice. But what exactly is it? And more importantly, how 
do we get it?
             The good news is, according to Les Edgerton, voice is 
something we each already possess. And in Finding Your VoiceHow to Put 
Personality in Your Writing, Edgerton sets out to tell us how to let that 
unique voice shine.
             Edgerton begins with several chapters discussing how writers 
lose their own voice and adopt either a highbrow writerlyvoice or a neutral 
voice devoid of personality, what Tom Wolfe called the beigevoice. He then 
launches into a discussion of the elements that combine to create voice 
tone, mood, vocabulary and imagery.
