First Draft: A Literary Social with Laurel Nakanishi
Wednesday, March 10 @ 6:30 pm
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 First Draft event and a guided writing prompt. Share your writing. You never know what you might knock out as you knock one back!
