From Giggles to Guffaws to Rolling on the Floor – Winter 2023

Whether a snarky rhyme in a poem or a humorous turn in an essay, humor can serve a variety of roles in your writing. In this class, we will look at fun and poignant examples of writers turning to comedy as an essential tool. We will also discuss our own writing and try some writing exercises. 

Jay McCoy has served the local writing community for years through Carnegie’s Q-Munity LGBTQIA+ reading and writing group as well as mentoring, teaching classes, and co-hosting open mic series. 

This class is offered in partnership with the Lexington Pride Center and Read With Pride. 

This class is suitable for all levels.
