Stacey C. Johnson
What matters to me are questions about how to be here in this world at this time, in a way that sustains and nurtures life against the machines of destruction that surround. The perennial obsessions of my writing include: challenging accepted notions of who and what is allowed to matter, connecting to the collective fragility of life on this planet, and the liminal spaces between despair and hope. I am interested in how meaning and purpose may be shaped and reshaped through art, and my medium is language.
The purpose is connection from a place of mutual wonder, loss, and possibility; to honor and cultivate impulses toward play, a posture of questioning, and love.
