Johann Johns

J. H. Johns “grew up and came of age” while living in East Tennessee and Middle Georgia.  Specifically, the two places “responsible” for the writer that he has become are Knoxville, Tennessee and Milledgeville, Georgia.

Since then, he has moved on to Chicago- for a brief stint- and New York City- for a significantly longer stay.  Currently, he is “holed up” in a small town where when he is not writing, he tends to his “nature preserve” and his “back forty.”  His goal is to surround his house with all sorts of vegetation so as to obscure it from the gaze of the “locals.”  He is assisted in this task by his coonhound buddy and companion, Roma.

Most recently, J. H. Johns has been appeared in Syndic Literary Journal- Publisher’s Favorites, Fishfood Magazine, ken*again, The East Coast Literary Review, Exercise Bowler, Four and Twenty, Commonline, Danse Macabre Du Jour (2), The West Wind Review, The Potomac, Syndic Literary Journal (6), Smokebox, Word Slaw, Wizards of the Wind, Alura, and is forthcoming in Literary Juice, and the Lost Coast Review.


A Lifetime of the News has also appeared in "ken*again," a U.S. publication, (Winter 2014/2015).
