Lynn Magill lives in Western Washington with deep Iowa roots that influence many aspects of her writing and visual art. She will graduate from Central Washington University in 2021 with a master’s degree in Professional and Creative Writing and begin her doctorate in April 2021. Lynn has had pieces published in Route 7 Review, The Good Life Review, and Ruminate Magazine, and has forthcoming pieces in the anthology Writings on Emotional, Physical and Verbal Abuse via McFarland & Sons in Spring of 2021, Thin Air Magazine, Fleas on The Dog, and the anthology Nobody's Home: Modern Southern Folklore. Her artwork is also featured on the cover of Meat For Tea: The Valley Review's Issue 15. Lynn loves to travel and spend time with her husband on their Texas ranch herding goats and finding any excuse to avoid being within range of cell phone reception.
I write poetry and creative nonfiction, and also create art (primarily oil and acrylic paintings) made from recycled and upcycled materials that evoke strong Pacific Northwest and coastal influences. Both my written and visual art are informed by and reflect on our ability to create beauty in unexpected places and derive meaning and elevation from the unfinished and overlooked.
