Writing Tip from the Graduate Writing Center

Include yourself!

Do not eliminate yourself from your writing unless “personless objectivity” is absolutely necessary. Present yourself to your readers directly, honestly, and without pretension. You’ll win your audience’s trust while expressing yourself more clearly. Don’t write like someone you’re not.
