Sure, you'll write jokes, and this course is so much more...
This will be a revelatory experience.
A transformational course for writers, comics and those interested in personal exploration.
In just 5 weeks you'll write original comedy, add new comedic tools to your bag and your writing will improve tremendously.
And...you'll discover something new about yourself.
I enrolled in Kristina’s virtual writing workshop to learn how to craft tight jokes and to discover what is inside me that wants to be expressed. As a business development trainer and keynote speaker, learning how to write and incorporate humor into my programs is always on my mind. Working with Kristina, I learned the nuts and bolts of how it is done well. She believed in me and worked with me until I was not only prepared, but excited to share myself with the audience. -Merit Gest, speaker and trainer
Not your boss's write up! Taught with the same level of expertise as a university professor, this course is way better than any book I've read. Kristina clearly could write volumes of books, but there's so much more value in real-time instruction. Plus, through the Facebook group, she facilitates a tight-knit community where everyone learns from each other. Now I know how to write really tight jokes that are authentic and vulnerable. Writing Up! is the perfect complement to Stand Up! The Workshop. -Joseph Esler, comedian
This writing process gets you to what is universally human, authentic and not often revealed. It gave me permission to edit my work down to the really juicy material. Now, not only my writing, but also my speaking is more succinct and influential. And, it's funny.
This writing course is a mind's-eye opener, literally. I now see the world in a different and funnier light. I am much more aware of the absurd and humorous things that cross my path. These insights are good and authentic comedic material for me. Thank you Kristina.
Kristina's writing course finally (finally!) got me to shut down the internal editor and just WRITE! I saw that it doesn't matter what you're writing, just that you ARE writing, and from that mountain of words come the gold nuggets we're all looking for."
Kristina Hall’s workshop, Writing Up! provided an invaluable and much needed kick-in-the-pants to start writing again. With Kristina’s inspired coaching and a community of writers to share ideas with, I was able to break the cycle of procrastination I’d been using to avoid the writing process. During the workshop, I wrote more and had more fun writing than at any other time in my writing career. Best of all, my new found commitment and enthusiasm for writing has continued long after the workshop had ended. Thank you Kristina for sharing your talent and for creating such a wonderful forum for all writers. -Lisa Wolfe, MFA, writer and English/Composition teacher
How does it work?
Each week we'll participate in a teleseminar (via your phone or your computer.) Through writing tips and exercises, we'll guide you through each step of the writing process, developing your practice and exploring your life for material. You'll find the gems that make your writing uniquely yours and turn them into jokes. And, you'll participate with the group on our private Facebook page.
This is important:
- A willingness to explore deeply for personal material
-A minimum of 2 hours a week to complete your writing exercises, and up to an hour a day later in the course
-Watching and commenting on videos
-Engaging live on a minimum of 4 of 6 calls (they will be recorded)
-Engaging biweekly on our private Facebook page
The magic of this course is in mixing it up, however virtually, with the group. We'll be brainstorming, venting, posting and commenting on videos on our FB page, and we'll be talking and gesticulating (invisibly) on the call. Your participation is important!
