Along with the great Elissa Bassist, the editor of Funny Women on The Rumpus, I'm teaching a humor/satire bootcamp at Catapult in NY.
You'll learn how to write literary humor for 90 minutes with Elissa, than you'll learn how to write topical satire with me for 90 minutes, then we all hang out and do a Q & A for an hour! Catapult is a wonderful place to work and teach, and I met awesome writers the last time I taught this class.
The Belladonna Editors are so proud to be featured in the June edition of The Writer Magazine as one of the "Gatekeepers of Contemporary American Humor!"
You can buy the issue in print or access it through The Writer's app now. We're featured alongside the editors for McSweeney's, The New Yorker, Weekly Humorist, Robot Butt, and Splitsider - so good company!
I'll be teaching a six-week introduction to writing satire course at Magnet Theater in New York on Tuesdays this fall, starting September 12th.
Students from the first term have gone on to publish several of the pieces written in the class - check out this one that made it onto McSweeney's!
We focus on brainstorming techniques, forming a point of view, and learning different forms. You'll leave the class with three rewritten pieces, as well as info on submitting to different outlets.
