04/09/2019: Radio Show Sponsor

Most of you know I present Writer's Block. It's a local community radio show currently broadcasting live on Colne each Monday from 6pm (UK time).

I first pitched the idea of a radio show over 7 years ago and i didn't expect the pitch to be accepted. Generally in 'creative land' pitches are usually declined. However, over 7 years later and I'm still presenting.

It's voluntary work and I do in addition to running my business For the Love of Books, leading several community groups and studying with part time uni. The show's aims have not changed either - to shine a literary light onto the county's creative writing endeavours - yet they have evolved.

Over those 7 years, I've been part of 4 different radio stations, two of them I presented live and two were selected recorded shows and interviewed over 400 guests including authors, literary agents, editors, publishers, proofreaders, audio book voice artists, cover designers, bookshop owners etc. Often guests return, which is a really nice relationship to have.

Over the years I've discovered that the show is listened by people not just in our local community but wider too via the web. I have regular listeners in Essex but also further afield too all over the UK. It doesn't stop there either, listeners in Europe, Mexico, United States, Canada and even Australia have been in touch too.

Therefore, it was with pride that I announced this week that the Writing Magazine is currently sponsoring Writer's Block. I'm thrilled at this because I really love the magazine as it does so much for writers everywhere by supporting and encouraging them.

I hope you tune in to 106.6fm or listen online via www.colneradio.net - especially during September as there is a guest scheduled every week - because Writing Magazine have got some great offers going too that you can only get by listening to the Writer's Block.

Happy listening!
