"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty


Get-Your-Write-On Promptathon!

Join me!

June 3-5, 2016
at the beautiful historic writers retreat The Porches, in Norwood VA

5 Sessions of Diverse and Intriguing Prompts
designed to inspire, incite, and ignite your creativity!

Come write with us! Let’s make some beautiful work together!

4 Spaces available–Reserve your spot now!




This workshop will be a fun and generative weekend of inspiration focused on generating new writing in a supportive and easy environment. The weekend is open to writers of all genres – poetry, fiction, nonfiction– even to those who think they’re not writers! As a group, we’ll go through five different sessions of prompts and exercises designed to ignite creativity, inspire new ideas or reinvigorate old ones, maybe even giving ourselves the push to finish something we are currently working on!

After writing, participants will have the option to share what’s created for gentle feedback, if desired. Perfect for those who want some inspiration, and to write to generate and gather new material!

Join us for a weekend of freewheeling creativity and encouragement! And I cook for you!

$275 – includes described three-day workshop, take-away prompt materials, one shared evening meal prepared by instructor, light breakfast fare Saturday and Sunday mornings, and the beautiful relaxing accommodations at The Porches.
