TLWR In The News

A couple of weeks ago I received a call from CTV-Ottawa (Canadian Television's Ottawa station) asking me if I would be open to an interview regarding my blog about letter writing. "Of course!" was my reply. That afternoon, a reporter and a cameraman arrived at my home and spent an hour filming and interviewing me about The Letter Writing Revolution. If you live in the Ottawa area, tune in on March 21st and 22nd when CTV-Ottawa's 6pm news will feature a two-part series on The Lost Arts. The piece about TLWR will be the first segment. If you do not live in this area, I will hopefully be able to link to it so that you, too, can view the piece.

Then last week, after I spent the better part of the morning with Lisa, our favourite Canada Post Letter Carrier, I was interviewed for our local newspaper, The Whitewater Cobden Sun. After the owner of the paper read some of my favourite posts, she turned to me and said, "Let's just forget about the interview. You need your own column!" Now, that was a surprise and rather hilarious form my standpoint. Originally, she thought I could feature weekly articles about The Letter Writing Revolution but then we speculated that  people might get bored very quickly about letter writing only soooooooo........

The first installment of "Judicious Jabber" by Julie Keon will be in next week's paper. The second installment will be about letter writing and then after that.........your guess is as good as mine.

My dry spell is over and letters are leaving and arriving........we're back in business.


  1. WHOO HOO JULIE. Now I have to subscribe to The Whitewater Cobden Sun! No have a wealth of topics to write about.

  2. Congrats Julie! Both are perfect opportunities to expand TLWR!! :)


  4. You GO, letter writer!!!! Such fabulous news. Congratulations!!!

  5. Hi Julie
    I think we have a lot in common. I'm a huge advocate of "good ol' fashioned" letter writing. I love it so much i started a business based on selling letterwriting stationary such as envelopes you can mail and writing paper (i almost never sell cards as it defeats the purpose).

    I live in Victoria (originally from Ontario though) and a woman named Florance out here told me about your blog. I feel like we should do something together - some sort of fun cross promotional thing! My contact info is in my site or leave me a msg on my blog.

    Well done in getting the word out about letter writing! I couldn't support you more!


  6. So excited about the newspaper column.A great beginning.Good luck!

  7. How fun and exciting!!!!! Congratulations!

  8. Judicious Jabber? What a great name. Can't wait to "read all about it"!


I need to know that this revolution is growing and impacting the masses. Your comments motivate me! Please take the time to let me know how TLWR is working for you.
