1623 Studios and Gloucester resident John J. Ronan have announced the 30th season of the television series, The Writer’s Block with John J. Ronan. The award-winning production is one of the oldest, continuously-running public access shows in New England and a winner of First Prize for an Educational Program at the New England Cable Television Association.

The anniversary season starts with a celebration of the student-poet winners of this spring’s Poetry Without Paper contest, sponsored by the Gloucester Lyceum! Students from elementary, middle, and high school read and discuss their poems. The program airs Thursday, October 43, 2018, at 8:00 p.m., channel 12, and will be repeated week later. The entire year will feature a special line up and finish in spring, 2020, with a live program.

John Ronan, producer and host of The Writer’s Block, is a former Gloucester Poet Laureate and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellow in poetry. His most recent book, Taking the Train of Singularity South from Midtown, appeared in 2017. (

“1623 Studios is a dynamic force for culture on the Cape and we are proud of The Writer’s Block record,” Ronan declares. “This 30th year is a real milestone, a long run in any market, at any level. This will be a year to remember!”
