Elle L. Lynch - Writer, Creative Placemaker, Public Health Advocate
Elle creates written work, experiences, and third spaces that foster community and raise awareness at the intersection of social, cultural, and environmental issues. With each project her intention is to create something of beauty that brings us together and makes space to consider what it means to live slowly, to live in partnership with the natural world, and to live with an appreciation of the sublime in simple everyday things.
Elle’s writing has appeared in newspapers, magazines, blogs, and scholarly journals. Her consulting services have been utilized by a number of area nonprofits and small businesses to develop white papers, grants, websites, branding, client story libraries, and engaging social media content. A chapbook of her flash nonfiction is forthcoming from Kith and Kin Press.
As a cook, Elle owned and operated the raw vegan Clean Plate, the much loved farm to table restaurant Daily Grub, the collaborative Food Cart Project, and the subscription service Comfort Soup + Pie. These projects were motivated by a desire to bring people together around good food and to cultivate a conversation about where our food comes from and the people who grow it.
Elle received a degree in History from the College of Charleston. She is currently an MPH student at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Her study is concerned with the social determinants of maternal and child health, refugee wellness, and the role of green space as an essential component in healing, the development of resilient communities, and the generation of a more just and joyful future.
Elle lives in Omaha, Nebraska with her partner, artist Joey Lynch, their kids, three cats, and a sprawling kitchen garden.
