Carol Robbins Hull
Carol spent her childhood in a small town in south Alabama. Bountiful tables gave way to conversation and the retelling of family stories, where the expectation was that any story worth telling was worthy of embellishment!

For a few years as the Newspaper in Education Coordinator for a newspaper, Carol wrote instructional materials for students and teachers, but for most of her career she was a teacher in private and public schools. After leaving the classroom she began to explore more creative writing. In addition to writing, Carol gives workshops for teachers in simple bookbinding techniques for use in the classroom.

They Gave Us Glimpses is a collection of her essays, stories, and poems published by Court Street Press as the fourth volume in the 2002 Writers’ Group Series.

Between 2004 and 2015 she won awards in the Alabama Writer’s Conclave competitions in various categories: essay, nonfiction, humor, short fiction, and poetry. Several of these have been published in Alalitcom. She also won awards at the 2016 Tennessee Mountain Writers Competition in fiction, children’s literature, and nonfiction.

Her poem, ‘Dancing on the Edge,’ was published in Hurricane Gumbo, an Anthology of Alabama Poetry in 2010.

She writes with the Wetumpka Writers, Press and Authors, and the Creative Writers of Montgomery as Carol Robbins Hull, or Carol Robbins.
