Humor Workshop: "Chaos Remembered in Tranquility"
Begin 2020 with a laugh--a workshop about writing humor, that is. In this class with Bob Balmer January 25, we will examine how humor writers use incidents from their lives to turn the painful, the absurd, the odd, the embarrassing, the disconcertingly memorable…. into humor. Then, to follow James Thurber’s adage “Humor is chaos remembered in tranquility” we will sift through our lives to find those stories, anecdotes and incidents to guild with humor. We will, examining other humor-writers’ works, look at structure (essay or story) as a means to convey humor.
Chase away the winter blahs with other Writers' Studio classes from January through March:
