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 tutors in the writing center at Berklee College of Music. Lindsey infuses her writing classes with contemplative practices to foster compassionate awareness, distill our 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 an RYT certification with Yoga Alliance, 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 poetry collection.
