Amy Silverman (My Heart Can't Even Believe It) and Deborah Sussman (ASU's Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts) present a special writing workshop at our First Draft Book Bar in Phoenix.

How do I love thee? Count the ways—and put them on paper—in this one-night workshop filled with exercises, prompts, tips, and war stories from the letter-writing trenches. From lists to limericks, a love letter can take many forms, and you can write yours to just about anyone. Find the right words to let your mom, kid, best friend, or even your romantic interest know you care.
