Aileen Johnson

Spotlight: Aileen Johnson

Aileen Johnson (she/her)
Aileen loves goosebump-inducing fiction and film. She especially enjoys stories that marry themes of power & privilege, race, gender, sexual identity, and xenophobia with haunting and weird elements. She’s a huge fan of filmmaker Jordan Peele, and writers Helen Oyeyemi and Jewel Gomez.

Aileen holds an MFA from the Vermont College of Fine Arts Writing for Children and Young Adults program. Aileen also has a JD from GW Law School. She is currently an acquisitions reader for a literary agency.

When Aileen is not working, writing, or cheering on fellow writers, she enjoys hanging out with her wife and son and exploring the great outdoors with their spoiled Pit Bull/Boxer mix named Wink, who sleeps as much as possible and snores very loud.
