Writer Interview: Michael Lee Johnson

Welcome to the first Writer Interview on the Peeking Cat blog! We're starting off this new series of interviews with some words from the man who inspired me to start this. Michael Lee Johnson is a prolific writer who has been published in Peeking Cat Poetry Magazine several times and has had hundreds of poems published over the years. Learning about how widely published he is, I wondered what his process is when it comes to submitting his work to literary magazines. I thought an interview would be the best way to find out and share this knowledge with Peeking Cat readers, and so the first interview was born. And then I thought how interesting it would be to hear from lots of different writers and find out what motivates them, how they feel about writing, and what their writing dreams are. So every week we will be posting an interview with a different writer.

With no further ado, here is the interview with Michael Lee Johnson!
