The One-Two Punch

All Levels. In many ways, comedy hinges on the art of surprise and the ability to subvert expectations. We’ll examine how a writer’s voice distinguishes itself as comedic. We’ll cultivate our understanding of the subtleties, ironies, and paradoxes of language to discuss important issues and hone our critical thinking. We’ll also regularly write together based on a number of creative prompts. Each student will have the chance to workshop two pieces.

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.
