Notaro focuses on how to reach humor and bring it into your writing; looking analytically at what makes something funny, then using in-class writing exercises and discussion to demonstrate where to put it and how to pull off that elusive punch line. The workshop will also cover rhythm in humor writing, the essential element of timing, and subject matter.
