Bookmarks

Prolific writers are generally voracious readers, consuming new and old texts at a rapid clip to fuel their ideas and get outside their own head for perspective outside their own experiences. In Bookmarks, we ask writers and creators to share what they’re reading and how it shapes them, hoping to learn a little about their thinking in the process.
