Make 'Em Laugh

This 50-minute workshop is directed at writers in any genre and at any skill level.

According to Nathaniel Hawthorne, easy reading is damn hard writing. Nowhere is this more true than when it comes to writing funny. Join Jess Lourey, author of the Lefty-nominated Mira James comic caper mysteries, as she shares interactive exercises and field-tested practices for getting a laugh out of your reader, regardless of your genre or subject matter. This session covers comedic timing, tastes, and tips. Come with a sense of humor and something to write with and on. (AV equipment—screen, wireless projector or projector with USB adapter on other end of cord—required.)
