In this summer workshop, students will learn skills to write print humor while immersing themselves in an inquiry around humor more broadly. Central questions will be: What is humor and how does it work? What kinds of knowledge does it require? And what kinds of impacts can it have on others? Experiences will include the discussion of readings on humor (including excerpts from Poking a Dead Frog and How to Write Funny); the chance to share and analyze humorous texts of various genres and types; an introduction to academic humor theory and tips for writing print humor; numerous opportunities to workshop writing with other students; and the publication of writing for various contests and other student-chosen purposes, including the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. In addition to learning how to write print humor (and maybe becoming funnier in general), students can expect to use their experiences in this workshop—like considering audience, purpose, genre, language, timing and more—to carry over into other kinds of writing and communication more broadly.
