Comedy (seriously.)

No matter your audience, genre, or format, applying the principles that make comedy writing work can take any project from predictable to un-put-downable!

This presentation is geared toward writers of any level of experience, with writing from laugh out loud to deathly dramatic.

A Crash Course in Critique

Every writer needs a good editing team. Learn how to get the advice that gets results, and how to help other writers make their work shine.

This presentation is for anyone learning to write collaboratively, or with critique partners or beta readers. It can be tailored to the audience, from students to adults.

Codes, Ciphers, and Secret Messages

As long as humans have been sharing ideas, they've also been finding ways to conceal them. Learn the history of secret messages and the methods used to craft them, then create a new code of your own!

This presentation can tailored to different audiences: history buffs, mystery writers, or students ages 8 and up.
