Carol Crawford is teaching this winter at John C. Campbell Folk School.

This will be a great class with my friend, Carol Crawford, who heads up the Blue Ridge Writers' Conference each year in Blue Ridge, Georgia. Carol has always been one of my favorite teachers. She is a poet, an essayist, a fiction writer, and a creative nonfiction writer. Cost for the week is around 400 dollars. But local writers, Clay, Cherokee, Union and Towns counties can get their name on a waiting list for 1/2 price. Don't miss this opportunity. I am going to try to take this class myself. I need some motivation right now and there is nothing like a good writing class to get the old muse moving.

Maybe we can have Carol teach later this year at Writers Circle around the Table. Let me know if you would like me to invite her.
