Instructors: Even before they joined forces to form ABQ Writers Co-op, Lynn C. Miller and Lisa Lenard-Cook had made names for themselves as both writers & teachers. Lynn’s illustrious career at the University of Texas at Austin included two major teaching awards; she received the Coger Award for Distinguished Performance for her solo performances and adaptations of fiction for the stage. Lisa’s first novel Dissonance was short-listed for the PEN Southwest Book; her subsequent books, the novel Coyote Morning and a book about writing fiction, The Mind of Your Story are also award-winners. Lynn is the author of two novels, The Fool’s Journey and Death of a Department Chair, and co-editor of Voices Made Flesh: Performing Women’s Autobiography. Her play, “Passenger on the Ship of Fools” (with Laura Furman) won a new play award in 2009. Both writers conduct workshops nationally as well as locally and serve as mentors to writers on individual projects.

ABQ Writers Co-op is a new joint venture founded by Lynn C. Miller & Lisa Lenard-Cook to foster the creative writing process, & provide community and support––including classes and retreats––for writing.
