Corvallis and Newport Online: Tiffany Pitts on Humor

April 27, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Willamette Writers on the River Chapter Logo

Sharpen Your Wit: Building Story With Humor

Lighten up your evening with Sharpen Your Wit: Building Story With Humor presented by author Tiffany Pitts. This will be a meeting of both our Coast and Writers on the River Chapters! Pitts will discuss different ways humor can be used to deepen storytelling. She will break down comedic timing and how it is used to build or relieve tension within scenes, creating interest and gripping the reader. She will also look at ways it can be used to develop characters from one-dimensional names into complex heroes and villains. Participants should be prepared to take part in a short (3 sentence) writing exercise.
