Writing Short Humor & Telling Big Jokes
In this class, students will write short humor pieces. We will spend time on writing exercises and telling jokes in a highly supportive environment. Outside of class, students will expand ideas from these jokes into 500-800 words longer short humor pieces for humor publications like the New Yorker, McSweeney's, Slackjaw, and many more. By the end of the course, each student would have written at least three short humor pieces and numerous stand-up and tweet-worthy jokes.
