Carol Cooley is trained in the Amherst Writers and Artists group writing method. Her workshops and ongoing groups are designed to help you define your writing voice, build your confidence as a writer, and allow you to grow in a strong, safe class environment. They are perfect for beginners or the experienced writer who wants to generate new writing material in a positive group dynamic.

The following workshops are ongoing in the Raleigh-Durham and Wake Forest, North Carolina area:

Prompt Writing Workshops: In this four-week series, writers will gather in a supportive circle to build their skills and confidence through prompt writing.

Teen Writing Groups and Workshops: Teen and Youth writing groups include ongoing groups, day-long workshops, and four-week workshops. These successful groups are supported by local middle school teachers and parents.
Group size will be limited. Contact Carol for further information.
