Lisa Coyne

Boston, Massachusetts
Manuscript Seminar with Tim MacGabhann

For the past 25 years or so, I’ve worked in different contexts as a clinical psychologist, researcher, academic, clinic director, and advocate. At present I am an Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School and I direct the New England Center for OCD and Anxiety. I received my MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Florida in 1995 and ha ve written numerous articles , chapters , and a few books on psychological flexibility in children and families. What is most important to me is helping young people find their strength s and discover magic in the ir world s, even in the darkest of circumstances . At present, I am working on a young adult novel called Edge of the World that is informed by the many stories I ha ve been privileged to witnes s in my work . It is my first, and I am grateful, honored and eager to learn in Under the Volcano with so many incredible writers and teachers.
