Prompt to Page with Tracee de Hahn

Each month, we interview a published writer who shares their favorite writing prompt. Whether you’re just getting started or have written for years, you’ll find ideas and advice to inspire you and help you become a better writer.

Prompt to Page is brought to you in partnership with the Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning.

On this episode of the Prompt to Page podcast, we talk to Tracee de Hahn, author of the Agnes Luthi mystery series and coordinator of the Carnegie Center’s Author Academy.

Tracee prefers “to think of a prompt as a possibility, but not necessarily a necessity.” She’s partial to the origin story as a writing prompt because it helps her understand the characters and places she’s writing about. Listen below to find out how to enrich your own writing with this prompt!
