Write about a New Year’s Eve party where the champagne is a potion that transports those who consume it to another world or time. First write about the experience from the perspective of the teetotaler whose friends disappear. Then write from the perspective of one of the travelers.


What was the best thing that happened to you this year? The worst thing? Or, write a letter to yourself to open on December 31, 2016.


Write an article or blog post with resources for people in your community who want to cut loose on New Year’s Eve and get home responsibly.
