Meet Carol


"Dreams Aloud was born of my own passion for making the artist's life easier. As a writer, I know how challenging it can be to promote one's own work. I learned about the process over a long period of time and with plenty of help along the way. Now, I want to pass what I have learned on to you."

Carol M. Upton is a Writer-Editor, Workshop Facilitator, Publicist, Dream Chaser and Co-Founder of The Sunshine Coast School of Writing. Over 100 of her articles and book reviews have appeared in numerous newspapers, magazines and anthologies, including the Vancouver Sun, Coast Reporter, Cup of Comfort Cookbook series, Change Agent, American Journal of Trauma and Family Caregiver News. She currently writes profiles for Just Business Magazine and monthly book reviews for Horses All.

Carol lives and writes at Skookumshack, a 50-year-old Gibsons cabin. Her memberships include the Coast Cultural Alliance, Women in the Horse Industry, Petwriters and the Federation of B.C. Writers. Her community involvement has been with the Festival of the Written Arts, Showcase of the Performing Arts, Artesia Gallery, Mystique Andalusians and the S.P.C.A.

When not in front of her computer, Carol can be found playing with horses or following her dogs along the beach.
