Things have taken a turn for the busy here at Small Print. And there are some great television and radio gigs to keep things interesting.
I’ve been taken aboard to write the scripts (on-location direction/narrative, post production voice-over, embedded ad material, etc.) for Fish’n Canada — Canada’s longest running and most-watched fishing/outdoors show on Global Television’s national network. I’m also writing material for the Outdoor Journal Radio show on Sportsnet’s the Fan590 — and it looks like that will be some exciting creative directional material (putting some creative/humourous oomph into pre-production and live material). I’ll also be doing some periodic co-hosting on the live radio show.
Of course, I’ll still be fitting in magazine and newsprint articles, communications writing for clients, and plenty of food-related writing as well. Toss in a neglected “outdoor kids” book project, a smartphone app project, as well as the randomness that comes with being a writer in Canada, and you’ve got one busy guy.
There is only one way to survive being a writer in Canada. And that’s to keep busy. Really, really busy.
