Carol Rice arrived in Louisiana 24 years ago, found it wonderfully magic friendly and fattening! She raised and trained horses and one child here, and also was in business as CFO of two companies. She is also an artist and only in the last ten years has been writing poetry. Her first chapbook, Fishing in Louisiana, was launched at a Festival of Words Cultural Arts Collective gathering in August 2013. She has degrees in Psychology and in Religious Studies and loves the big topics like LOVE, GOD, ISOLATION, AND COMMUNITY. Her next chapbook is in the works. She loves Acadiana Word Lab too.

Bring something to write with and on!
