I am always grateful when I've hired Vicki to help with a script. Along with her deep understanding of structure and craft, she brings a unique perspective on story and character. I have come to rely on her encouragement, wit and wisdom to take my projects to the next level.

Vicki’s stories are full of wonder, imagination, fun, and adventure! The pages she writes exude grace and wisdom, and she brings those same qualities to her teaching and consulting. If you’re looking to improve the originality and professionalism of your writing, Vicki can help you!

I have had the honor and pleasure of knowing Vicki Peterson for several years, and trust her judgment in stories and her professionalism in this industry greatly.
Ken StewartProducer / Mother at War
What I appreciate about working with Vicki is that her focus is not just getting words down on the page, but rather, her desire to capture the underlying ethos of the characters and story. That is a rare trait amongst many contemporary writers.
David NicsicVP Operations and Development / Origin Entertainment
Extremely professional, organized and very capable. One knew that when Vicki was involved with the project, it was going to get done with tenacity, joy, care and character. Vicki has the ability to dissect problems and synthesize new information in a way that is effective, efficient, joyful and excellent. She worked very well with groups yet has excellent leadership skills. Direct, fair, honest yet tactful. Would jump at the opportunity to work with her again.

In a field overrun with wannabes, Vicki is that one-in-a-hundred persons who actually knows what she’s talking about…
Libby FrizWriter / Producer / Turn, AMC
With a penchant for witty and insightful gleanings into the human heart, both Vicki and Barbara brought the theory of story to a point where it met our individual, actual lives–marrying authenticity and depth of truth into how we write. Bringing them out to speak was a “must have” event for us, changing all our story ideas, understanding, and writing for the better.
Scott TeemsWriter / Director / Rectify, Firestarter
Vicki is a terrifically talented writer, with a keen knowledge of story and a thorough understanding of what works — and what doesn’t — in a Hollywood screenplay. And she's not afraid to tell it like it is.
David ImpastatoProducer / Family Theater Productions
Give Vicki Peterson any subject, topic, or theme and ask her to build a tale on that foundation, and the result will persuade you that the story she tells has always existed and came about not by assignment but by the personal demands of her imagination. In the fundamentals, as well as the details, she’s an original – story construction, character development, action, dialogue that lives. Working with her has been an education, and her work – entertaining in the best of ways.
Are you a producer buried under a pile of scripts? Do you want to test out an idea or adapt an existing property? Do you need a story expert to work with your team? Are you trying to determine which project is right for you to invest in? Vicki has consulted on hundreds of projects in her 20+ year career, from web series to feature films to Broadway productions. She works with independent producers looking to “rent” a development executive on a per-project or an hourly basis. She specializes in helping directors and producers communicate their vision to the rest of the creative team, and helping writers make the most of the notes they are given.
