What you'll learn in this comedy writing class:

In a hands-on workshop featuring lectures, in-class writing exercises, and supportive feedback, discover how to write a comedic piece that is part story, part essay, part dialogue, and entirely, uniquely you. Learn all about the tools, techniques, and tricks that comedy writers use to get laughs in prose, screenplays, sitcoms, blogs, stories for live performance and even business presentations. 

You'll also make an exciting discovery: There are no limits to what can be written "funny"! Anything on your mind and in your heart can be expressed through humor. The workshop is designed for the novice comedy writer, experienced comedy writers, and all points in between. And, last but not least, we'll have lots of fun and laughs along the way.

Due to the remote live format, some features of the course maybe substituted at the instructor's discretion. Must be 18 years or older to enroll in this class.
