Doug Johnson was born in Denver Colorado and is a writer, musician, and artist. He is the founder of Cave Moon Press, a non-profit literary press dedicated to underserved populations and literature. Doug also creates hand-made greeting cards entitled, "Mandala Magic," and hopes to continue illustrating other projects. Indeed, a former graphic artist, he still designs books, CD jackets, and book covers, but he most enjoys collaborating with artists and authors. In 1998, in collaboration with Dan Peters of Blue Begonia Press, Doug won "Best Letterpress Design" at the Bumbershoot Arts Festival in Seattle for his first book design. Doug's poems have appeared in Audience Review and Poesia, and his photos have made the cover of Audience Review and Tipton Review. Doug's latest book of poetry and prose, "Black Mountain Whispers: A Tribute to Raymond Carver," came out this year and is available at CaveMoonPress.org.
