Emily VanWinkle-Johnson is a high school English and theatre teacher at Estill County High School.

Reason for signing up:

I signed up because I find myself needing an outlet and hope to inspire my students to use writing as an outlet themselves. I rarely share my work with an audience- aside from the Haiku’s I write on the white board for my students’ amusement- but want to be more open with my work, regardless of how “good” it really is.
