Judy Hogan teaches in the communities of the Greater Triangle area. Creative Writing classes are offered now at Hoganvillaea Farm in Moncure. They are open to writers interested in improving their writing and working with other creative writing students. Judy's tried and true method involves reading the work of great authors and helping students achieve their own voice in writing. Students may share their own work in class and with Judy.
