Write Here, Write Now | Anna Flores: "Family as Prophecy"
6-7:30PM TUESDAY, MAY 26

Need ideas to help you start writing? Join us for a monthly pop-up workshop co-presented by Phoenix College and ASU's Piper Center for Creative Writing.

Each session includes a 30-minute mini-class and a writing prompt exploring some aspect of craft—setting, dialogue, character development, etc.—followed by focused writing time and the opportunity to read your work to the group.

This workshop will be hosted online as part of our virtual event series.

Tonight, writer, actress, and ASU MFA candidate Anna Flores continues the series with "Family as Prophecy."

Writing about family is a sensitive issue, one we usually explore through private history or a personal lens. At the same time, our experiences are conditioned by social, political, and environmental forces. How does the family serve as a microcosm of larger events? Flores will guide participants through a variety of poetic devices and techniques in an attempt to tease out this phenomenon, showing how our families form part of a shared collective memory, and using these results to inform our futures.
