Hybrid Portland: Humor with Sarina Dorie

June 6, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Willamette Writers Portland Presents

Good for a Laugh: How to Write Humor with Sarina Dorie

This meeting is online and in-person.

Learn the art and craft of writing humor from Sarina Dorie at the June 6th, Tuesday meeting of the Willamette Writers Portland chapter. This 7 pm meeting is a hybrid, in-person at 1336 NW Flanders and via Zoom. 

Learn how to identify and break down humor. We will practice juxtaposing words to create funny lists, use the element of surprise to tickle a reader’s sense of humor and play with words by using techniques that stand-up comedians use. Exercise your wit with new skills, make others laugh, and be entertained.
