Imagination 2021: Poke the Soufflé – Comedic Writing Workshop with Susan Juby
Analyzing humour is sometimes compared to poking a soufflé: it doesn’t take much for the dish to collapse into an unsightly mess! In this workshop, Susan Juby gingerly investigates the techniques that can make any writer’s attempts at wit and levity, absurdity and satire, not to mention hijinks, more successful. We will explore what makes a piece of writing funny and discuss the risks and rewards of introducing humour into your work. There will be exercises suitable for those who are already comfortable working in the comedic mode as well as those more inclined to tragedy than comedy.
