Lindsey O’Neill is a poet, teacher, and performance artist. She is founder of Lindsey O’Neill Yoga & Writing, teaches creative writing at Boston’s GrubStreet, and has been part of the Lizard Lounge poetry slam and spoken word scene since 2016. Lindsey infuses her writing classes with contemplative practices to foster compassionate awareness, distill an authentic voice, and enhance sustainable creativity. She believes both awareness-building practices and the creative arts are capable of inspiring community connection leading to social change. Lindsey holds a 200HR Teacher Training Certification from The New England School of Integrative Yoga Therapeutics, a City of Boston Artist Certification, and an MFA in Poetry from Lesley University. Lindsey has had poems published in FUSION magazine, Hare’s Paw Literary Journal, and Mass Poetry’s “Poem of the Moment.” She is currently at work on her first (and second) poetry collections.
