About the Author

Seki Lynch -Seki- it's like 'say hi' with a 'k'- is a performance poet, writer and bar manager. Originally from Leeds, he lives in London where he graduated with a BA in Creative Writing and English Literature from the University of Westminster. Since first intoxicated by drinks history after a Hemingway daiquiri, he's served pisco sours in Peru and designed serious cocktails with silly names for several UK establishments. He has performed numerous times at the Pint of Science and Curious Arts festivals at varying degrees of inebriation. His writing and poetry has appeared in Root and Bone and the International Times, and he was shortlisted for the Grindstone Literary Poetry prize in 2018.
