Read Across America

Amy Silverman (Phoenix New Times) and Deborah Sussman (ASU's Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts) present a one night workshop for writers of all genders working in any genre.

In this one-night workshop, Amy Silverman and Deborah Sussman will offer tips and tricks to get you started on a summer writing project. From prompts designed to get you writing in class to a brainstorming discussion meant to help you figure out your next steps (start a blog? submit a story for publication? write a book proposal? make a goal to journal? create a writing group?), this workshop will help you figure out your next step -- or at least have fun trying.
