My name is Dominique S. Johnson. I’m a writer whose main focus is exploring journalism and new media writing but I also have a strong passion for fiction and creative non-fiction. I am a proud HBCU grad from THE Winston-Salem State University where I received my Bachelor of Arts in English. I received my Master of Fine Arts degree in Writing at Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta.
I am pro-Black (but far away from being a hotep) and a sneakerhead to the tee. You can catch me in a shirt that screams. "I'm Black and I'm proud" with a pair of Jordan's about 90 percent of the time.
My preferred fiction genre is new adult fiction. I think the genre has great powerful stories that explore themes and characters readers can relate to. It is my hope that the short stories and novels I am currently working on will resonate with readers in the same fashion.
I am grateful God guided me to find my passion in writing because I do not know where I would be without it. In many ways, writing has saved my life and made me much more confident and empowered about who I am as a Black woman.
Maya Angelou once said, “The idea is to write it so that people hear it and it slides through the brain and goes straight to the heart.”
It is my hope that my words will leave a lasting impression on others and warm their hearts just like the many great authors have for me.
