Bar flies boot camp
JANUARY 27

Valley Bar and Changing Hands Phoenix collaborate to bring you a one-day writing workshop that ends with you on stage at Valley Bar. Are you a Bar Flies fan who wants to make the leap from the audience to the stage? Here's your chance, with our all-day (and night!) boot camp. Join the Bar Flies team at The Newton (inside Changing Hands Phoenix) early on a Sunday morning, laptop or notebook in hand. Get a prompt and instructions, write a draft, workshop it, rehearse it, workshop and rehearse some more, and perform that evening at Valley Bar. Coffee, snacks, and lunch will be provided by First Draft Bookbar. We'll also provide plenty of instruction on everything from inspiration to writing to delivery from Bar Flies curators and contributors Amy Silverman, Katie Johnson, and Deborah Sussman.
