Eileen Lynch is a poet and fiction writer. She’s also a waitress, grant writer, freelance editor, ghostwriter, and miscellaneous participant in the gig economy. A former political operative and recovering C*tholic, Eileen’s writing channels physical discomfort and elements of the grotesque to interrogate questions of self, space, rage, and space-age resistance. Eileen studied English and History at the University of Notre Dame. Her prose and political ghostwriting has appeared in The Washington Post, The Virginian Pilot, Medium, and on various platforms for over a dozen candidates and nonprofit organizations.
