About

Hello, my name is Sean Lynch. I am a poet and editor of Whirlwind Magazine, a print and online literary journal that I co-founded in 2014 with Lamont Steptoe. I’ve also edited several chapbooks, as well as Rocky Wilson’s poetry collection The Last Bus to Camden, which was released by Moonstone Press. My first book of poems the city of your mind was published by Whirlwind Press in 2013. The book gained praise from Frank Sherlock and CAConrad. I released my latest chapbook Broad Street Line under Moonstone Press.

        Its how the way people perceive things . A depressed poem when read , when u r out of depression sense more and sometimes makes u laugh and wonder that how come u wrote this …So cheers to depressed poems …we learn a lot from it :)

  10. Hi, Sean,
    I got an email letting me know that you’re now following my blog, and the titles of the blog posts (on Godot, ancient Chinese philosophies, and 1984!) got my attention.

    At the risk of sounding horribly condescending (I don’t mean to be at all), it’s really wonderful to see that someone your age is so seriously into writing (very good, from the little I’ve seen) poetry, social justice, and literature. I hope that you never lose your passion. :)

    So I’ll be following your blog as well, and at some point I may even hit you up for a Goodreads friendship, if that’s OK with you!

    Thanks again,
    Nancy Bevilaqua

    • Sean Lynch says:

      I’ve had older people comment the same thing you said before… apparently it’s surprising for some older people to see someone young and passionate about what they do. I don’t think that’s uncommon.

      • I may be somewhat out of touch then, or paying (still) too much attention to the media, or living in the wrong area, or all of the above. There just seem to be a lot of distractions, and signals that in order to “grow up” one needs to start going along with the crowd, that don’t seem to leave people time for things like poetry. But perhaps that’s always been the case, and it has nothing to do with age. I was passionate about things when I was 21, and I still am at 52.
        Again, I didn’t mean to be condescending in the least. It’s just that, from where I am right now, I don’t see it very much, and it made me happy. That’s all.

  11. Hi thanks for dropping by my bog and for the follow. I like your themes of social justice. :)

    Thank you so much for reading and following my blog. I appreciate it.

    I enjoyed reading your last post “An Introduction”. I like your prose. Besides poetry, you might consider writing essays (or a mixture of the two).

  14. hanan fatima says:

    Your blog is really cool! Good work :D

  15. I tried to buy your latest chapbook but it’s out. When will you have more of Broad street line?
