Comedy Toolkit: how to write funny

ignite-inspire-thrive

Saturday 7th May

10am-12noon online

In this two-hour workshop you will learn how to build a comedy toolkit and use it in your practice so your writing is much more engaging for your readers.

All writing needs light as well as dark. Whether you’re a budding comedy writer, writing literary fiction or romance, this workshop will skill you up. And be a whole lot of fun too!

Through exercises and examples drawn from TV, radio and prose, you’ll get an overview of the tips and tricks that working comedy writers use to craft hilarious jokes, sketches and scenes.

Learn how to zone in on a comic premise, establish a point of view, and define a tone, before trying your hand at the art (and science) of humorous writing. 

From structure to editing, approaching the page like a comedy writer is one of the best ways to shake up your process, grow your confidence, and discover your unique voice as a writer.
