Dawn Rice

Founder & Write On! Lead Instructor

Dawn Rice is the Founder and Lead Instructor of Write On! Creative Writing Center, a place where curiosity and inspiration are set free, and imagination and creativity are brought to life through Creative Writing Workshops, Camps & Events! 

It was after completing the Invitational Summer Writing Institute with the San Marcos Writing Project that her passion to discover and create opportunities to make writing fun and exciting for everyone grew.  

Dawn is an experienced educator having taught in the classroom for over 8 years, served as an Adjunct Professor at UNT, homeschooled her son through high school, and taught writing workshops and camps for over 8 years. She has a Master's Degree in Literacy Education from California State University San Marcos as well as a California State Teaching Credential and a Texas Teaching Certification.  

When Dawn isn’t planning for the next workshop, camp, or event you’ll most likely find her curled up in her favorite chair attempting to read a book or write in her journal while her three loving and extremely rambunctious golden retrievers are vying for her attention.  She loves to spend time with her husband and their two adult children playing board games, vacationing, or about anything that has them all together. Capturing a picture of the sky in all its amazingness, scuba diving in the depth of the sea, or sitting in the audience of a musical performance are sure to be how she’ll fill a vacation or free time. If you ever find you have an extra ticket to somewhere amazing or a musical, she will clear her schedule and gladly accept!

Vicky Skinner
Write On! Lead Instructor

While she’s always had a deep love for books, it wasn’t until she was thirteen that Vicky realized being an author could be a real career goal. She wrote her first book at fifteen and hasn’t stopped since. She grew up in Mesquite, Texas and attended UTD, where she received a B.A in Literary Studies. She’s the author of three young adult novels, How to Breathe Underwater, We Are the Ghosts, and All Our Worst Ideas, and she loves helping others discover and realize their own passions for the written word. While reading and writing own her heart, Vicky has other passions, such as movies, running, and pizza.
