All Levels. Find your own path to writing funny prose by bouncing comedic ideas off a supportive and receptive audience. This class will function much like a TV writers’ room or comedy club green room, with peers offering insight, alternate takes, and encouragement. Students will learn basic techniques then brainstorm, generate, and discuss their work. We’ll explore surefire methods of “punch-up” to wring maximum hilarity from the page. Students may try their hand at a variety of genres from listicles to fake news articles to personal essays and sketches. There will be much laughter.
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.
