16 March | 6.20 – 8pm | Age 16+ | Tutor Ann Grant
Whether you’re new to creative writing and fancy a laugh, or you’re a writer who would like to inject more humour into your work, this is the Masterclass for you! This event includes short and easy writing exercises along with time to share ideas and laugh together.
Using fun techniques and simple exercises, you can create your own comedy lines in a flash! Here’s a sneak peek of an exaggeration exercise explored in the session: “My friend is so organised if she was an object, she’d be a Filofax, if she was a celebrity she’d be Carol Vorderman, if she was food, she’d be a tray of sushi”. With guidance from Ann Grant, the possibilities (and laughs) are endless!
Tasks and activities in this workshop will vary from the session that took place on March 2nd.
You will need access to the internet and Zoom. The Zoom link, meeting ID and passcode will be on your e-ticket, this will be emailed to you after booking.
The room will open at 6.20pm for a 6.30pm start.

Feedback from past workshops:
Ann is a skilled inspirational workshop leader, who made us all at ease, and through simple exercises introduced us to the basic elements of comedic writing. Highly recommended! It was all new to me and I found it interesting. Caroline Gilfillan
Really good and simple exercises set for us with just the right amount of time to write something and share. A great way to develop my creative and my funny writing. Jakki Moore
