What makes writing funny?

At this Write Club for Grown Ups with author Sarina Dorie, you’ll learn how to identify and break down humor in writing. And then learn to create it yourself.

We’re opening up our popular youth Write Club series for adults: (Because grown ups need clubs and fun too!)

In this two-hour Write Club for Grown Ups workshop with author Sarina Dorie:

  • You’ll practice the art of humorous juxtaposition–putting unlike words together–to create funny lists
  • You’ll learn how to use the element of surprise to tickle your reader’s sense of humor.
  • Plus, you’ll soak up the techniques stand-up comedians use to make their audiences howl with laughter.

Come and play with words! You’ll exercise your wit, make others laugh, and have an entertaining time yourself.

About the Instructor:

As a child, Sarina Dorie (she/her) dreamed of being an astronaut/archeologist/fashion designer/illustrator/writer. Later in life, after realizing this might be an unrealistic goal, Sarina went to the Pacific NW College of Art where she earned a degree in illustration, and to Portland State University for a master’s in education to pursue the equally cut-throat career of teaching art in the public school system. After years of dedication to art and writing, most of Sarina’s dreams have come true; in addition to teaching, she is a writer/artist/ fashion designer/ and dancer. Sarina is the author of over 160 published short stories, and novels too numerous to count. Now, if only Jack Sparrow asks her to marry him, all her dreams will come true.

Sarina has sold more than 200 short stories to markets like Analog, Daily Science Fiction, Fantasy Magazine, and F & SF. She has published more than ninety books, including her bestselling series, Womby’s School for Wayward Witches. Visit her online at www.sarinadorie.com.
