Dr. Kirstin Jeffrey Johnson is a George MacDonald scholar, and a free-lance writer and lecturer based in the Ottawa Valley, Canada. Her doctoral studies (Institute for Theology, Imagination and the Arts, University of St Andrews) considered the concept of Mythopoesis / Mythopoeia as defined by Tolkien and Lewis, and as attributed to George MacDonald – how and why MacDonald earned their acknowledgment as a great mythopoeic writer, and MacDonald’s own mythopoeic intent. Her writings include studies of the work of Tolkien, Lewis, MacDonald, Charles Williams, and Owen Barfield.
