Writing Clearly: Active Voice vs. Passive Voice

Course overview

Voice in writing can be divided into two categories: active voice and passive voice. It essentially boils down to this: who's in the driver's seat? Is it the subject or is it the verb? With active voice, the subject acts upon the verb. With passive voice, the subject receives the verb's action. In this course, we'll take an in-depth look at each of these voice types.
