11:15-12:00 | Anatomy of Humor Writing
Humor writing is serious business. What reads as stream of consciousness or wildly improvisational is often edited and re-edited... honed into a sharp comic weapon that will leave you helpless with laughter. Hear from the humorists; you may laugh, but you will definitely approach your next humor piece with a new perspective.
