Who is speaking/Who is this “I”

I earned my MFA in poetry at Texas State University.  I have a BA in both English and philosophy from Rice University.  I am Vanessa Couto Johnson, and I am pleased to share my thoughts and read yours.

If you wish to see some of my poetry, have a look here.

If you are interested in more about who I am, the Empirical/Personal category on this site might suffice or will expand into sufficing.

I welcome other speakers/voices/tones.  If you are interested in the concerns of Means of Poetry and wish to contribute more than offering comments, please let me know (via the contact form page), and you could contribute a guest blog post (or perhaps a series of posts).
