2018 Writer in Residence:

Sarah L. Johnson


Sarah L. Johnson lives in Calgary with her noisy family and two slightly bewildered cats. She runs ultra marathons, has a filthy mouth, and does daily battle with curly hair. She also writes fiction in a variety of genres: literary, sci-fi, fantasy, noir, horror, and once a romantic comedy that was so very terrible and shall be blasted from the obelisks of recorded history. Her short stories have appeared in a number of journals and anthologies including Room Magazine, Plenitude Magazine, the Bram Stoker nominated Dark Visions 1: A Collection of Modern Horror (Grey Matter Press), and Year’s Best Hardcore Horror Volume 2 (Comet Press) . Her short story collection Suicide Stitch was released in 2016 by EMP Publishing, and her first novel, Infractus, is coming soon.

Sarah’s residency will run from March 1, 2018 – May 31, 2018. Watch for all the exciting events to be announced soon.
