"The instructor has gone through the process herself and was able to explain things from "the front lines.""

"I rode the train home scribbling ideas in a notebook. The next morning I got up and wrote another chapter of an easy-reader book I'm experimenting with. As I wrote, I thought about all I'd learned in class about character development, believable dialogue, confict and resolution, and making the whole thing interesting to a youngster. I can't think of a better investment of my time than to spend a Saturday in this class!"

<b>Intensives</b>

Stand-Up Comedy Writing
Comics say its the greatest high.  You step into the light, take a swig of water, pick up the mic, then reduce a crowd of people to a mass of helpless laughter.  Sure, the risks are great silence, heckling, complete humiliation but on a good night a stand-up feels rich enough to buy Cosby a cigar and Seinfeld a Porsche.

In this One-Day, you will develop an eye for fresh ideas, an ear for well-crafted jokes, learn how to structure an act, and tailor material to your individual persona.
