Question:

What is a formatting style and why do I have to use it?

Mary R.
Answer:

Formatting styles are a visual methods of standardizing written text. This formatting often includes rules for arranging written elements such as pages, paragraphs, and punctuation. Common style rules are established and updated by organizations such as the American Psychological Association (APA), Modern Language Association (MLA) and Associated Press (AP) and will differ between subjects and types of writing. Instructors often require use of a specific formatting style because it aligns with the subject or discipline the writing is for, and makes the writing clearer, more accurate, and professional.

Question:

What is a theme?

Mary R.
Answer:

Often, a piece of literature will involve an underlying main idea or topic, called a theme. A theme may be included intentionally by the author, or may be interpreted by a reader. Themes may span a wide range of topics, but often involve universal constructs such as power, love, or truth. Though a theme may not necessarily be stated outright, it is often made evident through literary elements such as dialogue, plot, and characterization.

Question:

What is passive voice and how do I transition to active voice?

Mary R.
Answer:

Passive voice is a grammatical construction involving the subject and verb in a sentence. When a sentence is passive, the subject is acted upon. For example, the following is a passive sentence: "The party is being hosted by the company." To make this sentence active, you would adjust the construction so the subject is performing the action. For example, "The company hosts the party." Though passive voice is not necessarily incorrect, writing in active voice is often perceived as more straightforward and clear.
