Anna Johnson

Anna Johnson is currently undertaking a PhD in Creative Writing at Kingston University. Her practice is one of poetic-prose life-writing and poetry and her research focuses on the intersections of maternal studies, disability and illness writing, neurodiversity and queer theory. Anna’s PhD study explores the ways in which the language of the spectral, ghosts and hauntings, offers a possible route to the expression of difficult-to-articulate experiences, such as the strangeness of early motherhood.

Anna’s recent publications include chapters in the collections, Women in Transition: Crossing Boundaries, Crossing Borders, Routledge, 2021, and From Band-Aids to Scalpels: Motherhood Experiences in/of Medicine, Demeter Press, 2021.
