Humor in Hard Times: Writing Satire with Anthony Sisler-Neuman
SUNDAY, JANUARY 31, 2021
2 p.m. • LIVE Virtual Event • $5
Everyone needs a little humor to help us through the hard times. In this workshop, we will learn how to form a strong comedic point of view on topical news (2020 has PLENTY!) You will brainstorm, draft, and rewrite short pieces in the style of satire/parody (think Saturday Night Live or TikTok.) Since satire is the comedy of outrage, students will be asked to free write and work on pieces about topics that are meaningful to them.
(Suggested ages 12+)
