How to Write for McSweeney’s (ONLINE) [Jeff Bender]

All Levels | This four-week online course examines the key elements of writing brief, McSweeney’s-style pieces. It also explores publication options within the expanding humor-writing market. You might be encouraged to find that humor sites are surprisingly literary and a mix of low- and high-brow, as evidenced by popular headlines “Our Daughter Isn’t a Selfish Brat; Your Son Just Hasn’t Read Atlas Shrugged” and “Famous Writers’ Cosmo Tips.”

This class takes place online through our partners at Wet Ink, and sessions can be completed at your own pace throughout the week.
