Intro to Comedy Writing with Alice Osborn

Writing memorable comedy can be so rewarding and so terrifying all at the same time. Getting folks to laugh exposes the author to fear and anxiety, but usually these risks are worth the reward!

In this class with experienced author, editor and humorist Alice Osborn, you’ll learn basic comedy writing: the rule of 3s, timing, detail, absurdity and acute observation. Alice learned that once she injected humor into her writing, more people liked her work—imagine that!

We welcome anyone who wants to liven up their prose or poetry. All writers at all levels of experience are welcome.

Location: Pick A Class, 502 S White St., Wake Forest, NC 27587

 Tuesday, March 12, 2013 Time: 6:30-8pm Fee: $20

    I would love to attend your meeting. The problem is that I live in Caryit's just too long a drive to Wake Forest.
    I would have to leave at 5:00 (heavy traffic time) to get to the meeting, then face another long drive home. Please let me know if you ever change your meetup location closer in to Raleigh.
