She served on the Kentucky Women Writers Conference Board of Directors 2012-2017. Edwards holds the PhD in Rhetoric and Composition as well as the MA with Creative Writing Thesis, both from the University of Louisville.


With this second book of poems, Lynnell Edwards establishes a strong reputation not only as a poet of gargantuan love for life and the world her persona's live and breath, but as a consummate master craftsperson . . . this is an exuberant, lust-for-life inundated collection that makes for an intoxicating tapestry of voices and landscapes . . . from California to Kentucky. Her poems show great maturity, elegance, and above all an incredible grace for language and gift of detail. I could not put this book down for fear of stopping her song . . . to read this book is to fall in love with the world all over again.
