Make Them Laugh: Writing Humour
Three steps to writing funny stories:
- Acquire or otherwise procure a sense of humour.
- Use it when writing.
- Rinse and repeat.
Terry Fallis will lead a discussion of what it takes to be funny with only words on the page. The workshop will explore the types of humour that most lend themselves to the written form, and will examine various techniques used by successful comic writers. Time permitting, there will be a couple of exercises to help move the humour from theory to page. There should also be a few laughs along the way.
