Adapting to Your Audience
Determining your Audience Type
Writers determine their audience types by considering:
- Who they are (age, sex, education, economic status, political/social/religious beliefs);
- What Level of Information they have about the subject (novice, general reader, specialist or expert);
- The Context in which they will be reading a piece of writing (in a newspaper, textbook, popular magazine, specialized journal, on the Internet, and so forth).
You'll need to analyze your audience in order to write effectively.
