The Organizational Voice.
Inkster, Bob
This overview of an English course, "Writing for Government, Business, and Industry" (listed as English 339 at St. Cloud State University in Minnesota), emphasizes the essential elements of audience and voice. Composition theorists' assertion that the absence of voice is symptomatic of a profound developmental deficit (suggesting an inability to navigate successfully the avenues of modern organizational culture) supports this paper's argument for using the classroom memo and committee minutes to facilitate students' development of an organizational writing voice and a sense of audience. A sample memo is attached. (SAM)
