Writing Workshop: Using Humor in a Story (Jefferson)

Humor in writing balances out pain, reveals the narrator's vulnerability and builds an emotional connection. If humor is such a vital tool, why can it seem so difficult to create? Learn the roots of humor and comedy and use writing exercises to "find the funny" in your stories and yourself. Taught by local writer, actor, and storyteller, Amy Salloway.
