“Adding Humor to Your Writing”
Morning session: 10AM-12PM (free for members, $10 for guests) “15 Ways of Adding Humor to your Writing”
Whether you are working on an essay, a novel, a memoir, or a response to an invitation to your ex-spouse’s next wedding (sarcasm can be quite effective). From punching up dialogue to creating memorable characters, this workshop will help guide you through the funhouse mirrors of writing humor. To twist Joseph Conrad’s famous line, this workshop’s task, before all, is to make you see … humor.
Afternoon workshop: 1:30PM-3:30 PM ($25 for members, $30 for guests) “Even MORE ways of adding humor”
Building on the 15 ways of adding humor, participants will do a series of writing exercises, including: Analogies, Banter, The Mash-up, Speaking Nonsense in Three Words, Comedy is a Man (or Woman) in Trouble, and The Rant
Participants will be encouraged to bring a sample of a humorous piece they’re working on for group discussion
