about

This book argues that the personal voice, which is often disparaged in journalism teaching, is and always has been a prevalent form of journalism. Paradoxically, the aim of 'objective' reporters is often to be known for a distinctive 'voice'. This personal voice is becoming increasingly visible in the context of 'the confessional society'.




Ros Coward is Professor of Journalism at Roehampton University, UK. She has worked for many years as a freelance journalist, contributing to several national newspapers and magazines.
