Humor Writing — August 9-13

$249.00

From stand-up comedy to satire, the Sunday comics to a seriously funny serial, there is a delicate art involved in making people laugh. In this workshop, we’ll learn to wield the written word to share humor with the world, taking a look at how word choice, tone, context, allusion, metaphor, and delivery all contribute to effective— and hilarious!—writing.
