MOAD MDC Presents : TO WRITE MIAMI , A Reading With John Dufresne

About the To Write Miami series:

Writers who choose a city as their muse give voice to both a place and a people. Part scribe, part dreamer, they issue facts along with fantasies, leaving behind a history of the intangible realities of urban life—of a people's heartbreak and of their joy, of their loss and of their growth. To Write Miami is a series of eight readings that explore the city’s fascinating relationship with literature. The series demonstrates how writers pay homage to Miami and how, in turn, Miami feeds their creativity. Each reading will include performative elements, along with reflections on how the writing process often begins before words are even placed on the page.
