The Maitland Public Library, 6:30 to 8:30, Thursday December 15th.
This month we have Erik Deckers, author.
12 Professional Humor Writing Secrets: Many writers don't realize there is actually a formula to humor writing, so they don't attempt it. But all the jokes you hear on TV or read in books or newspaper columns follow some part of the formula, and everyone has to learn it. Long-time humor writer Erik Deckers will teach you how to crack the humor formula. He'll share secrets to finding humor in almost every situation (including the ones you're not supposed to) and the techniques professionals use to "write funny" without resorting to tired clichés and stereotypes.
