Grants, writing, & editing from the foothills of the Blue Ridge
Writer and editor Charlotte Farley works with publications and businesses that make a positive difference in their communities. She also works with small and regional nonprofits, bringing in over $200K purely in grant awards in just under four years for organizations like the Virginia Children's Book Festival, the Wharton Memorial Foundation, and the Bower Center for the Arts.
Charlotte stepped into freelancing after stepping out of the classroom in 2011. During her tenure as an English teacher, she revived the creative writing and literary magazine programs; subsequently, the publications earned national recognition and top-place awards from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association. Charlotte had the honor of presenting at the CSPA Spring Convention in 2008 and has since served on the Board of Judges.
A professional pianist and born-and-bred Long Island girl, she comes by her fondness for Billy Joel and bagels honestly and unapologetically. These days, Charlotte calls Virginia home and lives with her husband and two children in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
