Charlotte Gullick

Charlotte Gullick is a novelist, essayist, editor, educator and Chair of the Creative Writing Department at Austin Community College. Charlotte's first novel, By Way of Water, was published by Blue Hen Books/Penguin Putnam and was chosen by Jayne Anne Phillips as the Grande Prize Winner of the Santa Fe Writer's Project in 2002 and will be available November 2013 from the Santa Fe Writers Project.

Her other awards include a Christopher Isherwood Fellowship for Fiction, a Colorado Council on the Arts Fellowship for Poetry, a MacDowell Colony Residency, Faculty of Year from College of the Redwoods as well as the Evergreen State College 2012 Teacher Excellence Award. She has taught in the Travis County Correctional Complex and organized classes and literary events for Veterans in the Austin Community. Additionally, she has presented twice at the Associated Writing Programs Annual Conference (Washington, DC and Chicago, IL) on offering writing courses for Veterans.

Charlotte has taught creative writing for over ten years; she believes in demystifying what it means to be a writer so all can gain insight on both craft and process. To this end, she strives to create a workshop experience that deepens student confidence, clarity, and craftsmanship. Many of her students have been published, accepted into MFA programs, and won or placed in state and national writing contests. She served as Director of the Mendocino Coast Writers Conference for four years, and brings a keen understanding of the organization's commitment to accessibility, encouragement, and community.
