WORKSHOP: The Beaverton Satire Writing

Date: Monday May 4th 2020
Time: 5:30pm - 7:30pm

Want a career writing jokes about our screwed up world? In this 6-week class we'll cover all forms of professional satire writing. That includes satirical news in the style of the Onion & The Beaverton, short form essays a la McSweeneys & Shouts and Murmurs, late night monologues and satirical sketch comedy. We'll discuss how to use these formats to amplify your voice and point of view, as well as how to navigate the industry side of it all. Students will actively participate in each element of satire writing, and receive feedback from their acclaimed instructors who are currently writing about themselves in the third person.
