Photo of Tenea D. Johnson

Tenea was born in Kentucky. From it, she took the calm of the Ohio River and the swell of honesty (sometimes refreshing, sometimes catastrophic) that afflicts the folks born along its banks. Writing sustains her; music saves her. As often as possible, she straddles their borders to create compositions/fusions/hyphenated whatchamacallit better heard than described.

So far the Knitting Factory, Dixon Place, The Public Theater, and others have opened their doors to the form.

Her work has appeared in Mothership: Tales of AfrofuturismAfrican VoicesAriseHumanities in the SouthSycrorax’s DaughtersContemporary American Women PoetsShades of Blue and Gray, Whispers in the Night: Dark Dreams III and Necrologue, among others. She is the author of a poetry/short prose collection, Starting Friction as well as the novels, Smoketown, R/evolution and EvolutionSmoketown won the Carl Brandon Parallax Award; R/evolution received an honorable mention the same year. In May 2020 Blueprints for Better Worlds was released along with the social good site, buildabetter.world. November 2020 will see the publication of a short story collection, Broken Fevers.
