Comedy Writing - Sketch and More
Comedy Writing Online with Amanda Caswell
Whether you’ve ever wanted to write for late night, or just want to add a little more wit to your daily life, this class will teach you the various types of prose humor, sketch comedy, as well as comedic techniques and how to market your work.
Over the course, you will discover the fundamental principles of sketch writing and the joy of creating truly funny material. We’re talking about memoirs, essays, short stories, articles, and even novels as you develop a comic premise and write a variety of pieces for your writing portfolio. By the end of the course you’ll have at least 5 solid new pieces.
From nonfiction to fiction, blogs to the boardroom, you’ll discover just what it takes to turn your writing around and achieve the audience reaction you’ve always wanted.
