About Me

Fred Johnson is an editor and writer living in Edinburgh, Scotland. He’s been editing for the past four (or is it five?) years and reading/writing for as long as he can remember. He’s a copyeditor and member of the editorial collective for the University of Edinburgh’s Medicine Anthropology Theory journal, and an editor for Standout Books, Silverwood Books, the Book Butchers, Oxford University Press, and Birlinn (Polygon). He has a first-class BA with Hons. in English literature from the University of Liverpool and an MPhil from Trinity College Dublin and, as he misses the student life, enjoys taking short courses at the University of Edinburgh, the latest of which was a creative writing course focusing on short fiction. He writes poetry (and has been published in TildeThe Incubator, Spark: A Creative Anthology, Iota, Zetetic: A Record of Unusual Inquiry, Belleville Park Pages, and Spring 14) and short fiction, and eventually plans to get started on that novel. He loves twentieth-century poetry, modern American fiction, and has a soft spot for nineteenth-century Russians.
