Lynn Magill lives in Western Washington with deep Iowa roots that influence many aspects of her writing and visual art. She holds a master's degree in Professional and Creative Writing from Central Washington University, and has been published by McFarland and Sons, Thin Air Review, and Meat for Tea, among others. You can usually find her anywhere there are animals (especially dogs) or a lack of cell phone service - and ideally both.
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.
