Lisa Lopez Snyder comes to us from the University of South Carolina, where she received her MFA in Creative Writing, with a concentration in Fiction. Her areas of interest include identity issues in fiction and non-fiction, and the exploration of narrative as a way to make sense of the human condition. Lisa was the recipient of The Chattahoochee Review 2011 Lamar York Prize for Nonfiction for her essay, "In Transit." Her essays and fiction have been featured in The Raleigh Review, The Scrambler and Foliate Oak. Her Writing 5, "Transcending Borders: Migration and Identity," asks students to write several formal and informal papers that explore the complexities of migration, displacement, and identity. As they do, students will come to understand writing as a recursive process in which they can practice the abilities necessary for critical reading, analytical writing, research, and revision.
