First Draft

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

The Center for Writing and Literature at Miami Dade College 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!


This is how it goes: Write a story. Have a drink. Write a better story. This is how it goes: participants are led in a short, themed writing prompt, then everyone gets some time to write their stories. Those who want to, will read their work aloud. We'll take a break to drink and socialize (your first drink is on the house!), then we start the whole process over again.


Theme: Between the Sheets

Where: Books & Books at the Arsht Center, 1300 Biscayne Blvd, Miami (Parking available in Lot C!)

When: Thursday, February 11 | 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

Instructor: Nick Garnett

¡First Draft en español!

¡Tómate una copa y escribe mejor!

Una tertulia literaria guiada. Embriaga a tu editor interno y exprésate con libertad.


Así es como funciona: Te damos un tema, escribes diez minutos, si quieres compartes con el resto de los participantes. Hacemos una pausa para socializar y que pidas una copa (la primera la invita la casa). Repetimos la dinámica.
