"Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." - Leo Tolstoy

That's a really great first line, but it has very little to do with our upcoming workshop, accurately entitled "How To Be Genuinely Funny in Your Writing."

And you want to be genuinely funny, do you not, my dear workshop attendee? By that we mean finding what kind of humor most naturally suits you and your readers. Whether it's high-brow satire, irony, absurdity, or dialogue that would make Woody Allen finally quit making films, you will consider the many types of funny that might work for your work.

YA novelist and self-proclaimed serious poet Adam Holt will provide examples of various types of humor in modern fiction. Expect straight talk about how to be funny on the page. You'll also write funny things in this workshop, or you will fail miserably and relive all manner of teenage angst. Whether you get funny or die tryin', we can all agree that a bit of good-tempered humor might be just the thing you, your novel, and our country need to save ourselves from utter catastrophe.

Note: In the event of a catastrophic asteroid strike, this workshop will be rescheduled. Otherwise, it's on like Cheech & Chong and Donkey Kong.
