Tracing (Or, Learning to Write From the Books You Love)

You know that you don’t know how to write a certain scene… say a kissing scene. And you want to learn how to do it—but how, exactly, do you figure out how to write like your favorite authors?

Join Erin & Sachiko today as they dive deep into how, exactly, you’re supposed to figure out how to be a good writer. Classes help, degrees help, but the best help of all is right on your book shelf.

Erin shares her personal strategy of “tracing” chapters, what they’ve taught her about how she writes, and how, exactly, she uses this wealth of information to move her forward in her writing journey.

You don’t have to have an MFA to learn from the books around you—just practice tracing!
