Marsha Johansen, Around the Edges

In this raw collection of words and imagery, a journey of survival through poetry, Marsha Johansen writes of abuse, suicide, rebellion, fictional adventures and mystical fantasies. Artistically inspired by living in Albuquerque (NM), her writing unmistakably helps her wounds heal as her true life is revealed in these poems.

Marsha Johansen has been writing for over 40 years. Living in California, Texas and Paris, learning French, typing legal briefs in a pre-computer world, working in video at NASA or attending poetry workshops have all contributed to her writing skills. Her work appears in the Fixed & Free Anthology 2015, Fixed & Free Anthology 2018, New Mexico Poetry Society Picnic Chapbook, Overseas Adventure Travel Magazine and the Albuquerque Journal. She presently resides in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
