Carrie Noël is a teacher by day and an artist by night. Though she has entertained the idea of being a writer for a number of years, she has only recently begun putting the necessary structures in place to make her dream a reality. Thanks to a last minute dare by one of her best friends at a Wednesday open mic at the Waltz back in January, Carrie has begun releasing her writing from the place where she insisted on always keeping it tucked so close. Since then, Carrie has made it her personal goal to write more poetry and fewer excuses. She has been a featured writer on DreamWriteNow.com, and she is currently working very closely with the owner of DWN to publish her first book. In the meantime, you can follow her most recent writings through Tumblr, “Beauty in Flight” (http://beautyinflight.tumblr.com/) and her blog, “Lessons in Flexibility” (http://lessonsinflexibility.blogspot.com/).
