Writing Satire with Julia Weiss (Cards Against Humanity)

Saturday, August 11, 2018 | 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This workshop focuses on the Whys and Hows of social/political satire.

Workshoppers will participate in a variety of exercises devised to help them connect to and think about the world around them, develop stronger satirical points of view and understand the difference between satire and a “political joke.”
