Online Class | Making Memoir Funny [Kristi Coulter]
This class will take place via video-conferencing (Zoom), Pacific Time.
All Levels | In writing about pivotal life events and transitions, it’s easy to forget that moments of comedy often happen right alongside darker ones. But finding and writing those funny moments is a way to add color and depth to your story, to connect more deeply with readers, and even to help them approach or navigate difficult subject matter. We’ll look at writers who use humor as a tool for illumination and empathy, and use what we learn to generate some laughter of our own. We’ll also spend some time discussing and working with the common fears associated with being funny about serious matters.
