About Me

Fred Johnson is an English chap living in Edinburgh, Scotland. He’s been editing for the past four years and reading/writing for as long as he can remember. He’s worked for BubbleCow, Kirkus Reviews, Standout Books, the Book Butchers, the Proofreading Company, 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 The 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 modern American fiction and poetry and has a soft spot for nineteenth-century Russians. You can follow him on Twitter and Instagram @FredBobJohn.
