A guided writing prompt with a twist.
Because writing is thirsty work.

Have a drink. Write a story. Have another drink. Write a better story.

Instructor: Roxanna Elden
Theme: Microscope vs. Telescope

Miami Book Fair presents First Draft, a series of informal writing events that turn happy hours into great stories.

You’re inspired. But you’re also thirsty. Swing by a First Draft event for a drink (the first one’s on the house) and a guided writing prompt. Share your writing. You never know what you might knock out as you knock one back!
