Christine Lincoln is an internationally award-winning author and motivational speaker. Her stories have appeared on stage at Symphony Space and Word Theatre, read and performed by Don Cheadle, Gary Dourdan, and Lizan Mitchell. Her short stories have appeared in various literary journals such as Pleiades Magazine and the Paris Review.
Lincoln is Poet Laureate Emeritus of York Pennsylvania. During her service to the City of York she created a writing group at a local domestic violence safehouse where she helped survivors of trauma and abuse explore poetry as a means to healing. She also created “Writers Voice,” a monthly column for the York Daily Record that featured emerging writers and visual artists throughout South Central Pennsylvania.
Christine has traveled throughout the United States and the world, including South Africa where she was the first author to represent the United States in South Africa’s annual Year of the Writer Celebration. She has appeared on NPR, The Oprah Winfrey Show, and has been featured as a “Phenomenal Woman” in O: The Oprah Magazine.
Lincoln’s life motto is this: you only have this one wild beautiful life, so live it like you mean it.
Currently, Lincoln divides her time between Ghana, Africa and the United States, working as a writer, speaker, teacher, artist, community leader and activist. And primarily this is how Lincoln sees herself, as an artist activist who uses every talent and gift like a superhero, like Princess Diana of Themyscira. But, instead of using a magic lasso and invisible plane Lincoln uses words and metaphors to save herself and hopefully the world.
