Ruel Johnson may be infamous for his Facebook cuss-outs, but he is also the main man when it comes to encouraging young and emerging talent. He proved this during the launch of Fictions and a collection of Poetry at Oasis Cafe last evening.
The launch was less about Johnson’s own work and far more about his sister, Stacy Johnson, and other poets and writers present. In a way, Johnson sacrificed his singular beam of light to and for something much, much greater.
Whatever Johnson is accused of being flickers and dies when compared to the effort he makes to help young and emerging writers. Writing is clearly life and passion for this man.
All the best to him and Janus!
