Elizabeth Johnston is Assistant Professor in the English and Philosophy Department and in the Honors Institute at Monroe Community College, Rochester, NY. She received her Ph.D. in eighteenth-century British literature from West Virginia University, where she largely focused her study on women novelists. Since graduating in 2005, she has published a range of feminist scholarship on topics as varied as the critical reception of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, the depiction of women on reality dating shows, and fashion and beauty in the Middle East and North Africa. Although she has been writing poetry since she could hold a pencil, she has only recently begun to publish her work. She has had poems appear in the online journals Organs of Vision and Speech and The Muse: An International Journal of Poetry. She lives in Rochester, NY with her partner, Brian, her two redheaded daughters, Ava and Christina, and three unruly cats.
