My name is Martine Næss Johansen and I am a 28 year old author, SLAM!poet, editor, graphic designer and content developer. In 2015 my first novel was published called "Hvite jenter kan ikke synge blues". The second, "Lykkelige mennesker har ikke bikkje", was published in 2018. 

I have a Post Graduate Degree in Journalism from London School of Journalism. I have worked for Bogstadveien Magazine, AltrockLive music magazine and Luft!g travel magazine while pursuing my studies. 

I am editor of the queer cultural journal, MELK and the queer publisher littMELK. I perform SLAM!poetry and host poetry and writing-workshops for kids and young adults+.
