THE WRITER'S VOICE: Reviews
"The Writer's Voice: Lessons in Composition is a great resource for writers at any level. It can be a step-to-step guide for high school students and first year college students; a refresher and reference book for undergrads and grad students; and a perfect source of lessons and handouts for writing teachers."
Center for Writing Excellence, Southeast Missouri State University
"Your book arrived. When I first flipped through it, I was struck by how perfectly practical and useful it is--with lessons designed to clearly, concisely explain concepts to students. No dancing around the idea, but instead plenty of solid, easy-to-understand, and immediately applicable lessons. I showed everyone at the lab. they are glad to know we'll get to meet you this summer."
Mary Christy, Southeast Missouri State Writing Lab
"Congratulation to Lynne Dozier on her wonderful book - it's an honor to find one of my poems inside. I find it hopeful that her lessons can now inspire more writers, not just those who were lucky enough to study in her class. It's the next best solution to cloning." Dave Lankford, New York City. Writer, director, actor and designer
"Everyone should check this out. You think you know how to write? You're probably wrong. This book helped me fin my voice when I was 16 years old sitting in my first AP English class, and whenever I find myself struggling to gasp the right words, I flip through these pages and get back on track. I promise you won't be disappointed." Sara Childs, Mandiant Industries, NYC.
"WHAT A DELIGHTFUL SURPRISE, Lynne! I love your book (I scrolled through it rapidly and intend to go back and read it more carefully) but I appreciate the acknowledgement and the references throughout. It's a good solid work. Thank you for making my day! And thank you for touching my life once again." Dr. Joyce Carroll, Director Abydos Learning
"I just finished reviewing your book, THE WRITER'S VOICE. Maybe if I had had a teacher like you, I would have enjoyed my English classes more." Becky Liewer, ESL Instructor
"I could not be more honored to be a part of THE WRITER'S VOICE. I had already heard about publication through high school friends on Facebook. But to find out that you chose some of my work to feature in it...I have no words. Thank you thank you thank you. It means the world." Brad Southerland, Actor, Producer
One of the finest writing teachers ever..., I write this review as both a reader of this book and a colleague of the author. Lynne is, putting it plainly, one of the finest teachers of writing ever. Her ability to teach writing, in all of its forms, to a variety of student types is uncanny and she has poured many of her techniques and her vast knowledge into this book. If you are a teacher of writing or just someone looking to improve their own writing, you cannot find a better resource."

"Upon reading this book, one fact was definitely clear. The material covered is extensive. This textbook seemed to attach every crucial facet from learning the proper usage to the application of the English language. Additionally, it's nice to see a book that includes writing by students of the author to help connect teacher and pupil to the content. This textbook covers material not ordinarily included in curriculum today. 'This book is a MUST for high school as well as college students. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
An amazing compilation of literary goodies. October 31, 2012 iBookstore: Textbooks/Humanities C39Hunter
"I consider this book to be a nice collection of lessons and activities that could be easily implemented into the classroom. It is not a strict text, but rather more a guide that encourages students to experiment with different types of writing. In other words, it leave a lot of room for an instructor to play around and implement into a curriculum. The topics are diverse, including the mechanics of writing, poetry, political discourse, and even slang in the Information Era. I think the layout is engaging and fun. Moreover, many of the essays are relevant to this generation of students, and the section on writing for standardized tests comes from the author's experiences with Texas education system."

"Wow! This book answered my prayers. I haven't learned one thing in English for 3 years and when I found out I had to write 3 essays for college admissions, I totally panicked. A friend told me about this book¦I checked it out and boy! Am I glad! The chapters on revising, grammar and essays helped a lot, but I really enjoyed reading about the English language and the one on film criticism. Hey! Movies will never be the same." iBookstore by LAMP 2014
