Humour as a literary device is often used to ease readers into engaging difficult subjects. It can be built into a character’s personality, into a morbid situation, or into dialogues; however, if done wrongly, it can jar the reader, thereby ruining their reading experience. In this masterclass, the Comedy Women in Print Prize-longlisted author of the critically acclaimed novels The Blessed Girl and Critical But Stable will show us how to naturally employ humour in our writings. The masterclass will cover the approaches necessary for effective humour writing and the pitfalls to avoid when introducing humour into our works.
This masterclass is open to anyone who is interested in how to write humour and make their writing funny. To apply for this masterclass, click on the JOIN THIS CLASS button above. The deadline is 18th February 2022.
