      EVENT DETAILS
      Online Comedy Writing

      Learn satire writing techniques used on online comedy publications like The Onion, Reductress, Clickhole and others. These skills will be applied in a mock writers room setting, where you’ll receive private notes and advice on how to improve your humor pieces and prepare them to be submitted for publication. You’ll walk away with several finished pieces, a heightened sense for brainstorming jokes and an improved comedy vocabulary to better articulate what’s funny about your funny idea.
