About Us


Cat Kurtz

Cat Kurtz 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 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 Schneider

Lisa Schneider completed her Ph.D. in English at Emory University and her M.A. in Interdisciplinary Humanities at New York University. Since obtaining her PhD, Lisa has taught writing and literature at Emory University, Georgia Institute of Technology and Roosevelt University. She is currently an adjunct faculty member in the English Department at Front Range Community College.


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. I strive to inspire kids with a love and appreciation for many of the gifts that writing can offer.
