I am a poet and an academic, which means that I not only live in an ivory tower, but can describe it, using vivid imagery and interesting metaphors...


  • Applications to perform on Glastonbury Festival's poetry stage have now closed.  We hope to let successful applicants know by May. Read more here.

  • Along with the Collaborative Poetics Network, I recently published a free E-book based on my participatory arts-based research method of 'collaborative poetics.'  This resource pack includes teaching materials, guidance notes and creative activities and is aimed at anyone who wants to use the arts and research to explore lived experiences and work towards social justice.  You can find out more and download a copy of the pack on our website.  
  • I have a new co-authored article on collaborative, arts-based research available online, via the journal Qualitative Research in Psychology.  You can access the article here

  • In 2015 I changed my name from Helen Gregory to Helen Johnson.  You will see references to both names here - and elsewhere in my professional life
