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.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through the end of 2020.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
