Write On!

May Episode

First broadcast May 2022

Want to become a published author? Are you in need of some inspiration from other writers? How did they turn their passion into a paying job?

Write On! Audio is a new podcast from Pen to Print. Pen to Print endeavors to bring you down-to-earth advice from people who’ve ‘been there and done that’. Through Write On! Audio, you’ll get to meet many of their writers and creative friends; all of them keen to share their own journeys with you.

Taking the best bits from Write On! magazine and Write On! Extra, they’ll bring you writing tips, features, interviews and excerpts from the work of their contributors and guests. Most importantly, though, if you’re a writer, poet or dramatist, published or not, they want to hear from you so that they can share your words and your unique voice on their podcast.

May's episode features inspirational moments from Andreas Loizou, writing tips from Erin Kelly, a listener contribution featuring three poems by Danny Baxter, and a poem 'How Are You?' by Filippo Ross.

If you’d like to contribute a piece of writing to the podcast, email pentoprint@lbbd.gov.uk
