You’ll be delighted by Johnston’s entertaining view of language and stories about how we use it. And, you’ll be give the opportunity to pose questions about words and their usage to one of the writing industry’s best and brightest.

She has worked as a technical writer for 20+ years, including a stint teaching tech writing in the Engineering School at Cornell University. Her words have landed on billboards, blackboards, birthday cakes, boxes of eggs, and the back of her new book, "Word Up! How to Write Powerful Sentences and Paragraphs (and Everything You Build from Them)."
