Ready to learn satire writing from the editors and founders of Reductress? Based on the popular recurring writer’s workshop out of their offices in NYC, editors Beth Newell and Sarah Pappalardo lead this online seminar going over the fundamentals of satire writing in the style and method of Reductress. In this workshop, you’ll learn about what makes a great piece, how to generate ideas based on current events, how to build a solid headline, and write a satirical piece of your own – all on your own time and at your own pace.
