Twila Johnson received an MFA in Creative Writing from George Mason University in 2008. As a general education instructor who refuses to be general, Twila specializes in unique approaches to generate passionate writing from her students. At any time, she might be seen in costume while sending students on a CSI: Composition Scene Investigation, hosting a class Comp Chat talk show, or leading everyone in singing a comma rule.
In 2010, the GMU Office of Sustainability featured her as a “Sustainability Hero” for designing a student-run Going Green mock business convention project. That same year, she was honored with an Excellence in Teaching Award for General Education.
