We spoke to poetrepreneur @j.r.williams_ about his time on the road that formed the body of his work and the message that we do not hear enough. Unfiltered, of course.
The Big Smoke: Your Instagram pics are fabulous. If for whatever reason you could only save three, which three would you save?
Can you please tell our readers a little bit about yourself and how your Instagram came to be?
I am 22 years of age, born in Pasadena California and I really enjoy traveling. I have been to or through most of the states in the U.S. and that is when I really started writing. That time on the road is also what drove me to start my page on Instagram.
What do you think is the main driver to people coming to your Instagram daily and following you?
With my page, I really wanted to find a connection between nature and people. I also enjoy being the writer who can talk about the emotions and feelings many people have kept hidden. I believe the ability to speak on topics that most have buried deep within is one of the main reason people continue to visit my page daily.
What is the main story you like to tell through your Instagram?
You’re not alone. It is a simple message but one I think a lot of people do not hear enough.
What is the worst way for someone to try and get your attention on Instagram, and what is the best way?
The best way to contact me is simply through DM or to comment on any of my photos. I love hearing feedback and the stories of those who follow me. I think one of the worst ways to contact me is through spam “f4f” or anything along that line. Please, if you want to get my attention, just say hello.
