    Please explain bachelor level writers are less experienced as professional writers?

    Bachelor level writers are far less experienced than professional writers because many students lack the average writing skills needed for college, which is why many students enter remedial writing classes once they enter college. Therefore, bachelor level writers who may attempt to enter a professional career as writers are in the preliminary stages of their writing expertise, which is why they are less experienced than professional writers. Professional writers have the ability to partake in technical writing, grant writing, copywriting and journalism because of their ability to utilize what is learned during the bachelor level in regard to incorporating research, critical thinking and strategic planning skills into their writing.

    The academic voice is the grammar and usage that is utilized by a writer wherein the writer is capable of using the correct communication skills to ensure that their audience is reached. If it is an opinion paper that requires for persuasion of the audience, the academic voice should be argumentative and requires argumentative writing but if the paper is a research paper that is detailing the results of a research study, the writer must engage in scientific writing that isn't objective. This is what meant by understanding an academic voice, which dictates for the writer to practice their critical and strategic planning skills to understand which academic voice is appropriate for the audience the writer is attempting to reach.
