Writing Humour: A funny thing happened on the way here
Saturday 17th June 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree
Have you ever wanted to inject some humour into your writing, but felt intimidated by the idea of ‘being funny’? Join performance poet Leanne Moden for a fun and informal writing workshop that will help you to express your sense of humour through poetry.
Using simple comedic and poetic techniques – including a crash course in oxymorons and a super pun generator – this workshop will help you to write about the sillier side of life.
Leanne Moden is a poet, performer, workshop leader and event organiser, originally from Norfolk. She began performing stand-up poetry in 2010, and has done shows across the UK, including events at Trinity College Cambridge, the Royal Albert Hall, and Bestival on the Isle of Wight. She mostly subsists on jokes, jewellery, and jaffa cakes, and absolutely can’t stand alliteration.
This event is free, but donations are welcome.
