Adding Humor to Your Writing

Instructor: Ally Broadfield
Active Class Dates: 9/01/20 – 9/30/20 (4 weeks)
Cost: $25 RWASD Members, $30 Non-RWASD Members

Humor is a part of our everyday lives. It can inspire hope, relieve tension, and help connect us to one another. Learning to use humor effectively will enhance your work and may even boost your creativity by challenging you to approach your craft in a new way. Even if your subject matter is serious, the subtle use of humor can help ease tension and give your readers a chance to breathe again after an intense scene. Learning to be funny is one of the most difficult writing skills to master, but as long as you possess a sense of humor, this class will teach you the skills you need to add humor to your stories.

“I appreciated Ally’s thorough feedback which touched on not only the topic of the workshop, but other writing points as well.” ~Debra Brown

Mindset, Motivation, and Well-Being A to Z for Writers

Instructor: Joy E. Held
Active Class Dates: 09/01/20 – 09/30/20 (4 weeks)
Cost: $25 RWASD Members, $30 Non-RWASD Members
Lesson Frequency: Monday/Wednesday/Friday; Twelve Lessons

MINDSET, MOTIVATION & WELL-BEING A TO Z FOR WRITERS presents a host of suggestions for overhauling your writing life inside and out. Some of the topics will resonate and some will need to percolate for a while, but everything from coping with anxiety to applying zero-based thinking can potentially recharge your existence until you are unstoppable in every aspect. These premises apply to more than just writers, but the creative juices needed to produce stories is more draining than it looks. These concepts could be the missing ingredient you’ve been searching for.

The course will present the ideas and offer outside readings or internet links to explain each one. Course participants will be encouraged to post experiences and thoughts.
