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.

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. Bring your own drink and log in for a guided writing prompt. Share your writing. You never know what you might knock out as you knock one back!

Instructor: Jennifer Maritza McCauley
Theme: Mirrors

This program is in partnership with the 2023 NEA Big Read Miami
