Welcome to WRITE ON, an educational and entertaining show that is filmed and produced by Eastlink. Become a guest on Write On, a show for readers and writers about authors.
Written language is one of the greatest human accomplishments; its formation signifies a breakthrough in human progress. In many ways, the written word has played a more instrumental role in forging human civilization than almost anything else.
Season 2 is in the planning stages – guests are being lined up and dates are being scheduled for interviews.
The spring series’ broadcast began Monday May 17th, 2021 on Eastlink television 10 & 610.
Each week, you are invited to tune in, to hear what authors have to say about writing and the challenges they face.
Learn how to plan your outline, polish your book, develop characters and options for publishing.
Hear what authors have experienced in their writing, why they write and what they write about.
The fall series helps writers: overcome writers’ block, discover how to flesh vs pad your book, create plot twists, understand literature, hear what story telling is about, create cover designs, master blurb writing, title your book, uncover the pitfalls of procrastination, get marketing tips and hear what makes great writers great. On Write On you will get the inside track on poetry and learn why authors are passionate about writing.
