ONLINE SKETCH WRITING 1
MAY SESSION NOW OPEN
This class will take place over Zoom. You will need access to reliable internet and the Zoom app.
In the past weeks I have hosted multiple writers meetings over Zoom and, while it’s obviously not 100% the same as meeting in person, I am confident it is still worthwhile.
In this 8-week course you will learn:
-Proper script formatting
-Ways to generate ideas
-Tips on the writing process
-How to confidently pitch
-Practical experience in a (virtual) writers room setting
At the end of the 8-week course you will have 4-5 finished sketches. This class is for both experienced comedians and people just starting out - as long as you have a desire to write your own material, you are welcome. You will be required to write outside of class.
Through my experiences working with various groups and shows at The Upright Citizens Brigade, running writers rooms for digital companies, and pitching shows and ideas to networks and companies such as Maker Studios and Comedy Central, I'll bring you tips and skills to help you succeed whether you're in New York, Los Angeles, or anywhere in the world.
Class is capped at 8 people.
Dates: Wednesdays 7-9pm beginning 05/13/2020
Duration: 8 weeks
Location: The Internet
