Mena Johnson is a writer and poet who completed her BA Dip Ed (Hons) at Macquarie University in 2004. She is currently working towards a collection of poetry and a second novel-in-verse for children while her first seeks publication. Passionate about honouring the creative process Mena works with poetry and story while attempting to live into the gifts of creative practice. Recently she has begun to expand her knowledge and skills into the art of macro photography. This adds another dimension to her work through the revelation of that which is rarely seen, experienced or acknowledged; the very aspects she hopes to reveal in her writing. Mena lives on Scotland Island where she works to realize her connection to land and spirit.
