For the Love of Books - What People Say about Us

"It was great fun. I enjoyed seeing how a radio show worked and talking
about my story. I might write a play for the radio."
Mairi McGenity, Essex - Regarding Writer's Block Radio Programme

"I have found Sarah Banham to be a fantastic mentor. She helped in many ways! Being able to gain confidence is amazing and being on the radio as a co-host helped me a lot. Also learning the journalism side [of writing] at work experience gave me a chance to find out what I love and it opened a door to my future! I would suggest Sarah as a mentor to many people since she can teach you a great deal of information needed!"
SY, Student, Essex - Regarding Coaching and Mentoring

"Last Thursday, 14th July, I was invited on to Sarah Banham‘s Writer’s Block programme on Maldon Saint FM 94.7 to discuss They Do Things Differently Here, book 1 of my The Invisible College trilogy of dystopian novels for young adults.

I discovered both the programme and the station earlier this year, as a result of a chance Google search. I was most surprised to find that a local community station would have a weekly scheduled book programme, at 7pm Thursdays (repeated 9am Sundays). Sarah describes the programme’s aim as ‘to shine a literary light on Essex and its writers’.

On the programme Sarah intersperses music with news and interviews from the Essex literary scene. Each week she invites a guest, who may be a writer, poet, literary agent, editor or other profession related to writing. I would certainly recommend it to anyone interested in local writing. Sarah’s bubbly personality and enthusiasm is ideally suited to the show. Give it a try!"
