The Writers’ Show

The Writers’ Show talks to nationally published Canadian writers and others in publishing who are based in British Columbia, Canada. The emphasis is on the how-to of the writing process - character development, motivation, writing scenes - and experiences in publishing, including getting work accepted, finding an agent, publicity and reviews. The show is a resource for college-level writing instructors, students of writing, others who write, and readers. Guests include fiction writers, poets, nature writers, agents, and publishers. The show’s purpose is to make listeners aware of writers’ lives and to explain the process of writing to readers and others who are interested in how it’s done. The show offers tips to writers and explanations of the publishing process - what happens after acceptance, the role of the editor, the art design of a book, covers, marketing and publicity.
