A Lot About Me

Artist Statement

Alison Bergblom Johnson writes creative nonfiction and plays. She focuses on neglected personal stories about the past that intersect with the present. The stories she tells aren’t supposed to be talked about – they are often considered “too personal.” She tells stories that buoy insiders and educate outsiders. Her work connects to larger political movements: particularly women’s, lesbian, and disability rights.
