"Sean Lynch cuts a line through Philly, a line from way back, from just underground, 'like nothing happened,' a line from Ether­ idge Knight to right now, your tired desire, which is political. This line is both afterword and preface to a stampede. It will make you walk it off, the cop in your ear, the storm in your heart which is the history of empire. Do yourself a favor: read up and read often." - Ryan Eckes, 2016 Pew Fellow

Sean Lynch is a poet and editor who lives in Camden, NJ. The 2nd poet laureate of Philadelphia, Frank Sherlock, wrote that Lynch’s "...poems of place chart the shifting conditions of urban space, in all their terrors and possibility.” CA Conrad called Lynch's book "the city of your mind" [Whirlwind Press, 2013] “marvelous!” and says that "...Sean Lynch carves the true city with a knife in the leg." Lynch's writing has appeared in Milkfist, Poetry Quarterly, Tincture Journal, and elsewhere online and in print. He's the editor of Whirlwind Magazine, and his work can be found at swlynch.com
