Writing - Audience 2

Audience 2

Imagine a writer who works for a top car magazine. The magazine appeals to
people with an extensive knowledge of cars, car parts and the car industry.
Now imagine that the writer is employed by a national newspaper to write an
article on the latest brands of cars. How might the language and style of
these two pieces differ? Think about who the audience is for each piece of
writing and how those audiences differ from each other.

Now imagine that the writer uses the money made from these articles to buy
a brand new latest model car. The writer then starts a letter to a friend
to tell him about the new purchase. How might the language in the letter
differ from the car magazine article or the article written for the
national newspaper? Think about how the writer changes his style and
language for the chosen audience.
