Season Premier of the 32nd Season

September 30, 2021

1623 Studios and Gloucester resident John J. Ronan have announced the 32nd 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 has been recognized with a First Prize for an Educational Program at the New England Cable Television Association.

This season opens with Rockport poets Suellen Wedmore, Ruth Maassen, and Bob Whelan, who have created – with six other poets – an exciting new book: Rising Tide: An Anthology of Cape Ann Poets. The program airs Thursday, September 30, 2021, at 8:00 p.m., channel 12, and will be repeated a week later.  The year’s lineup of authors will end on episode #400!  That program will be an artistic preview of Gloucester’s own 400th anniversary. 

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 32nd  year is a real milestone, a long running series for any market, at any level, that has survived the virus!”
