How I Write is about helping you find what works best for your own writing. You can read what an author writes anywhere, but only on this show will you hear how they write. This show isn’t just about methods and styles, though. It’s also about what it means to be a writer today. How can you earn a living? What about building an audience? Should you use GPT?

New episodes of the How I Write show go live every week on Apple, Spotify and YouTube.com/DavidPerellChannel.
