Rebecca May Johnson

Rebecca May Johnson is a writer, creative practitioner and cook living in London. She recently finished a PhD about a radical German reworking of Homer’s Odyssey at UCL. As a journalist she has written features for Vogue, Elle, AnOther, The Financial Times, Tank, The Telegraph, The Business of Fashion and others. Rebecca writes poetry about classical figures, food and gender, and co-runs ‘Sitting Room’, a series of readings and events in people’s houses and public spaces. As a creative practitioner, Rebecca makes artworks and gives performances that engage with the interrelatedness of food, the body, language and memory. Her new food column for AnOther magazine launches this August, and she is working on a narrative non-fiction book about food, place and the body.
