Topic: Reading as a Writer

10-second review: A writer should read for more than enjoyment and education. A writer should read to note effects that are worth studying.

Title: “How I Write: Mark Bowden.” The Writer (May 2009), 58. The Writer is a magazine by writers for writers.

Summary/Quote: “If you admire a certain piece of writing, study it and re-read it often. I frequently copy passages of writing I admire by writing it out longhand to study word choice, rhythm, sentence structure.”
