Lindsay Herko

Lindsay Herko is a writer, visual artist, and social explorer. A childhood love for atlases has led her to explore ancient Cyprus and volcanic Iceland, yet she loves Rochester, NY very deeply. She annually organizes the city-and-love celebrant Lake Ontario Love Parade on Charlotte Pier. Her love for Anne of Green Gables brought her to Prince Edward Island this past November, invigorating her interest in how landscapes affect writers, and stimulating her to finish a novel in one week’s time. A 2012 graduate of the MFA program at the University of Notre Dame, Lindsay also produced a short story collection Air Hunger and became interested in creating accompanying story-songs. She was also the managing editor of the Notre Dame Review.
