Today I share with you the work of my friend Cecilia Johnson, who has just returned to Columbus after recently braving the wilds of Manhattan. Like me, she is a film school graduate - but whereas most people are generally, and appropriately, impressed when meeting a graduate from her prestigious institution (NYU) they inevitably respond to my alma mater (UNLV) with the always charming, “Oh, really? I didn’t know they had a film school in Las Vegas.” Nevertheless, she is a kindred spirit.
And not only do we share the stripes of a cinema past, she also constructs fiction, and is currently working on a novella that sounds passionately magical. Last month she received her MFA in Fiction from the Ohio State University, where she also served as fiction editor of The Journal.
