Poet JOHN PHILIP JOHNSON went to UNL, where he was the first editor of Laurus, the UNL undergraduate literary magazine. He published in some quarterlies at the time, and then left writing. Taking up writing again some years later, he has published poems in Rattle, Southern Poetry Review, Euphony, Ruminate, Chicago Quarterly Review, among others. He has tried his hand at genre work in Dreams and Nightmares, Astropoetica, and elsewhere, and enjoys the freedom and camaraderie in that field. He lives in Lincoln, Nebraska, with his wife and five children, in a house on 34th Street, three blocks from his parish, St Teresa’s, and eight blocks from where 150 years of ancestors are buried. In college he took up poetry after reading Byron, in “Don Juan”, rhyme “nunnery” with “gunnery” and thought Anybody can do this. He can be visited on Facebook or at
