Johnson is featured, along with Susan McCaslin, at London Open Mic Poetry Night on May 7th, 2014.
In preparation for the event, we interviewed him, with some of our questions reflecting Johnson's unique background: thus the problem of whether and how students can develop their own poetic voices within the strict and heavy course structure and academic environment of a university. We asked for advice. Below are pertinent excerpts. Stay tuned for the full interview, along with a group of Lee Johnson's newly published poems, to be posted this Friday, May 2nd.
