The FLOW Team


Cat serves as CU writing faculty where she teaches underrepresented students on the Boulder campus. When she's not teaching, she's playing with her family or working on her novel.

Cat Kurtz

Cat says: I decided to get in the FLOW because kids and writing are my two favorite parts of life. Putting them together creates something joyous and magical.


Lisa completed her Ph.D. in English at Emory University and her M.A. in Interdisciplinary Humanities at NYU. She has taught writing and literature at numerous universities and is currently a faculty member at Front Range Community College.

Lisa Schneider

Lisa says: I aim to help kids see the magic that comes from observing their surroundings with inventive eyes and finding just the right way to express things as they see them. Writing gives us time to know ourselves, understand others, and create the world we imagine.


“You get to write fun things and have two great teachers!”

- Amelia (age 8)
