Tampa, FL, July 11, 2017– Broadcast news writers have an exciting new resource to help them learn and grow. Long-time journalist Bridget Foster recently launched “The Writer’s Resource” blog. “I noticed a great need out there – not just in the Tampa Bay area, but across the nation. I have watched journalists just starting out search relentlessly for someone to teach them. Even veteran journalists are thirsty for more knowledge. They desire to be great writers, but there aren’t many resources out there to help them. The things that are available are incredibly expensive. That’s where ‘The Writer’s Resource’ comes in,” Foster said.
Foster is an award-winning executive producer. She mentors direct reports and interns every day in the art of writing. She guest lectures and has done several seminars on the topic. “Going online was the next logical step for me,” said Foster. She gathered her teaching materials and everything she’s learned over the years and put it all in one place,

Foster said this was years in the making. “I guess you could say I have been preparing for this my entire career—from the first anchor who tore apart my work to now. All of those learning moments are now online with ‘The Writer’s Resource.’ You know, a direct report once said to me ‘you love your teachable moments.’ I really do! It’s funny. I am talking about teaching people how to have fun with words, but I’m struggling to find the words to explain how I feel when I am coaching others. It’s like I am learning things for the first time too– through their eyes, and I get excited about what I do for a living all over again. ‘The Writer’s Resource’ takes my message to a larger audience. You have to check it out! This is just the beginning.”
