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

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.

You’re inspired. But you’re also thirsty. Bring your own drink and log in for a First Draft event and a guided writing prompt. Share your writing. You never know what you might knock out as you knock one back!

Instructor: Dana de Greff
Theme: Finding Inspiration in the Everyday

This interactive event will offer insight into how to find inspiration, as well as several generative writing exercises. Join us if you’re writing or always wanted to try your hand at creative writing; you’re feeling stuck as a creative; you want an expanded sense of what is possible in your work in 2022 and beyond!
