Our region is home to artists of all genres. On The Point, we give local writers their moment in the spotlight; throughout the hour we hear from people writing about a variety of topics. We learn about their writing process, what inspires them to put pen to paper, and how they’re using local resources to help with their writing, editing or publishing. We also endeavor to understand how has the pandemic impacted their work.
