Comedy Writing Workshop
Comedy Writing | Led by Michael Wright
4-week workshop, $150 to register
As the joke goes: dying is easy, comedy is hard. The approach of this workshop is to help each writer discover their own style of humor, their genuine voice and approaches to developing material out of the voice. The workshop will be open to any form of writing; each participant will seek to complete a short comedic work by the end of the four weeks.
