All Levels | Write funny things that make people laugh! In this course, students will explore the essentials of comedy writing. Learn techniques for brainstorming, pitching ideas and fleshing out a premise. Experiment with genre and narrative voice. Write your own short comedy pieces weekly—fake news articles, essays, vignettes—then workshop them with the class. With individualized attention and group feedback, this class gives students the tools to access their unique comedic voice.
Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.
If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.
If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.
If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
