Spencer Johnson

Spencer graduated from Franklin & Marshall College with a joint major in Environmental Studies & Creative Writing. He finds interest in writing about man's connection to nature through journalism, non-fiction reflection, and music in hopes that his relevant ideologies and systems of thinking will motivate others to take action or at least reflect on the way they live their own lives. To him, the environmental and social rights movement is going to require all of us to take action, regardless of social class, race, gender, interest, and political preference. So far he has written news articles for: Eco-Watch, 350 Massachusetts,, his local newspaper The New Bedford Standard Times and his alma mater's newspaper The College Reporter. He just finished up a 6 month stay in Montrose, Pennsylvania working with an Energy Justice Network project, Energy Justice: Shale Initiative, on the front lines of fracking and shale gas extraction. Captivated by the lack of action he sees in today's world, he endlessly writes environmental reflections, songs, and stories in hopes of inspiring others to action. This fall he self-published a book about his travels abroad in Australia, "Trail Mix & Goon: Adventures Abroad in Oz,"which will be available soon on He wants to write for a living because he wants people to see we're fighting for something more important than personal gain. We're fighting for the justice the people of this world deserve and to stop the exploitation of the many for the benefit of the few. In his opinion, a peaceful co-existence will be the only way to achieve a balance with the natural world.
