Ivy Johnson

Ivy Johnson was born on the open prairie where she picked crocuses as a child.  She was also raised speaking in tongues, which led her to poetry. She currently lives in Oakland, CA where she writes and facilitates creative writing workshops for kids. She is a founding member of The Third Thing, an Oakland based performance art group with feminist leanings. Her chapbook, Walt Disney’s Light Show Extravaganza, was published by Boog City in 2011. Her book As They Fall, a collection of poetic fragments published on 110 notecards, was published by Timeless, Infinite Light in 2013. She is currently working on a manuscript entitled Born Again.
