Erica Wurth Workshop at the Associated Writer's Program

  • The USC Tutor Student Center 3607 Trousdale Pkwy Los Angeles, CA, 90089 (map)

As part of the Associated Writer’s Program, Erica Wurth, author of CRAZY HORSE'S GIRLFRIEND, will be at the Tutor Student Center at the University of Southern California for a generative workshop on March 30th. 

Filled with complex characters overcoming and being overcome by the circumstances of their surroundings, CRAZY HORSE’S GIRLFRIEND thoroughly shakes up cultural preconceptions of what it means to be Native American today. Margaritte is a sharp-tongued, drug-dealing, sixteen-year-old Native American who dreams of escaping a Colorado town crippled by poverty, unemployment, and drug abuse before the daily ramifications of teen pregnancy eat her alive.
