Writer's Block - Wednesday on Saint FM 7-9pm

Writer's Block airs every Wednesday evening live between 7 and 9pm from Maldon in Essex, UK. The studio is based at The Plume School and broadcasts to the entire community, the nation and the world via the web site www.saintfm.co.uk

The aim of For over 5 years', Writer's Block has always been to showcase the great talent that Essex has to offer. The county is filled with creative people whose passions are as diverse as the county itself.

With a listenership of not only the local community but also the online community,I have interviewed over 350 guests including writers, editors, publishers, cover artists, audio book voice actresses, proofreaders, poets, scriptwriters, journalists, 'bloggers, song writers, as well as members of book clubs and writing groups. In fact, I want to hear from anybody with an interest in books from the initial idea of a story right through to the sale of the book itself. Any genre will be considered. There is always a weekly run down of literary news and views, events and opportunities too.
