Talk Southern to Me

The creator of YouTube’s Southern Women Channel shares humorous, lighthearted essays on Southern life.

Talk Southern To Me is a love letter to the South, y’all. Essays ’bout charm, beauty and style, chewin’ the fat, love, parenting, and more―full of yes ma’ams and no sirs, casseroles and cheese balls, taffeta and pom-poms…plus more Southern phrases than you can shake a stick at.

If you’re not from the South—bless your heart—pay attention cause there’s a ton of wisdom to be found in these heartfelt, humorous ways. Southerners speak their own unique version of the English language, and you’ll come to understand it in these pages. It’s a linguistic art. And it’s gooder than grits, y’all.
