What's Under the Spotlight?
Voice and Speech Review
The Voice and Speech Review (VSR) is the official publication of the Voice and Speech Trainers Association (VASTA) and is published by Routledge Press (Taylor & Francis Group).
We solicit articles and essays that focus on voice and speech topics and training, particularly for the performing arts. The VSR welcomes peer reviewed articles from a broad array of voice-oriented subjects. We also welcome scholarly essays and interviews based on personal experience that are often practical notes from the field, as well as book and other resource reviews. The VSR prides itself on encouraging and supporting new and veteran scholars alike.
