What is passive voice?

Passive voice occurs when the subject of a sentence receives the verb action. It often uses the preposition "by". For example, "The play [object] was directed by Craig [subject]".

What is active voice?

Active voice is the opposite of passive voice; the subject of the sentence performs the verb action. For example, "Craig [subject] directed the play [object]".

What are the benefits of using active voice?

Changing passive voice to active voice will generally make your writing shorter, clearer, and more direct. It's used for most non-scientific writing.
