About this event

Want to sharpen your prose with wit and warmth? Finding the Funny is designed for writers looking for laughs in both fiction and personal essays. We'll break down what makes something funny, how to find the universal in the personal and the personal in the universal and how to develop skills in specificity of word choice. Fun, informative, interactive.
