Elle L. Lynch - Writer, Creative Placemaker, Public Health Advocate
Elle creates 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. A chapbook of her flash nonfiction is forthcoming from Kith and Kin Press. She is currently at work on a collection of essays and public art projects exploring the importance of wild and green spaces to our individual and collective wellbeing.
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 food and environmental justice.
Elle has contributed design to a number of commercial spaces including Omaha's Trap Room. She was the set decoration buyer for Alexander Payne's NEBRASKA.
Elle lives in the Joslyn Castle neighborhood of Omaha, Nebraska with her partner, artist Joey Lynch, their children and cats. When not in her garden, Elle devotes her free time to advocating for local autonomist and abolitionist causes.
