Pen and Tell It! 4/5 Grade: Make ‘em Laugh

  • Thurber Center 91 Jefferson Avenue Columbus, OH, 43215 United States (map)

Everyone loves to laugh, but what makes something funny?  You’ll learn all the ins and outs of creating stories that tickle your funny bone, from slapstick to situational comedy, and then turn you loose to write your own.

Instructor: Andra Gillum is a free-lance writer, author of the children’s book series Doggy Drama, and writes a periodic column for the Columbus Dispatch using observational humor.  She also visits elementary schools to share her stories and teach about the writing process.

Classes are limited to 20 students and are $20 for 4th-8th grade. Families can mix and match classes but please fill out a separate form per student. All classes take place at Thurber Center, 91 Jefferson Ave. Please note the date of the classes as they vary. The registration deadline is Monday, Oct. 30.
