My students ask, "What is voice and how do you get it?" New York Times best selling author, Lee Smith, says about my writing, "Vicki mixes hilarity with true faith and in her memoir piece, I don't know if she's going to get raptured or not, but she sure can write! I'm looking forward to this collection, because in my own mind, Voice is the single most important element in prose narrative, fiction or non-fiction. And unfortunately, it's almost impossible to teach. The only way I've ever been able to do that is to give my students some good examples to read--so it'll be great to have a whole collection. Vicki has us in the palm of her hand."

Editor-in-Chief of Southern Writers Magazine Susan Reichert says, "Not only does Vicki have the talent to make her words come alive, but she uses her gifts to help others learn the art of writing Voice. She breathes life into her characters, captures strong emotion through feelings and sentiments, and conveys depth through expressive description. Vicki brings words to life and makes them dance on the page."

Emily Sue Harvey, author of Cocoon and former president of Southeastern Writers Association says about Writing with Voice, "Extraordinary talent resonates from Vicki Moss's writing. So does her humor! Her's is a voice readers will increasingly respect and love. Writing with Voice is as illuminating as it is absorbing and entertaining. Moss's propensity to tap into the human spirit will keep readers turning the pages for more as she continues to grace us with her bounty. A must read for any writer serious about perfecting their writing craft."

If you need a speaker/teacher for church groups, ladies retreats, or writing conferences, please click on my speaker topics button above where you'll be magically whisked off to a page of various topics. If you don't find the subject you're looking for, trust that if I've lived this long and I'm still standing, I can talk about most anything. People either laugh, cry, or both and tend to say I'm entertaining. If you're not magically whisked off -- let me know -- in an imperfect world, the link could be broken.
