Question:

What does it mean to "find my audience" when writing a paper?

Answer:

Finding your audience simply means to think about who might be reading your paper, or put another way, who your paper is dedicated to. Paying attention to who your audience is is especially important for argumentative papers, wherein the goal is to persuade the reader to agree with your thesis. Who our audience is can greatly affect the voice of the essay, what words you choose to unfold your thesis. For instance, if your audience is a group of scientific professionals, and your essay thesis deals with an area which they have mastered, then your language should be professional, concise, and apply the appropriate scientific jargon.

Question:

One may ask, when writing an academic paper, when do I know if my writing voice is informal or formal?

Answer:

All academic papers require the use of a "formal" voice, meaning that the writer applies language that is mature, professional and precise. One good way to tell if your paper is "informal" or not is to read it aloud, and listen to whether it reads like how you speak. If the voice of the paper sounds like an everyday conversation, using words such as "things" and "stuff" and "whatever," that is a good sign that your paper is "informal," and requires further editing.
