This study looks into the changing voice of Chinese Post-­-80s' students in English academic writing. Data were collected qualitatively through interviews with four Chinese Post-­-80s overseas graduate students and through an examination of their English essays with a focus on discursive features. Findings indicate that Chinese Post-­-80s' voice is changing as a result of their use of linear logical patterns, reduced influence of the ideology of collectivism, and dismissal of the traditional eight-­-legged essay. The paper offers pedagogical implications for academic writing programs both in China and in the West. Further research on other discursive features employed in Chinese students' English writing is suggested.
