Do you:
* Love to write?
* Feel you have a funny core but somehow a lot of the stuff that comes out of your pen makes people sob?

When: 3rd of April from 7-9.30 pm (free)
Who: Anyone with a good basic grasp of the written word and a thirst for learning (and coffee)
How can I write jokes when I’m not feeling funny?
Why does only my mother laugh when I read my stories out loud?
How can I find a light tone in a world that’s sometimes to dark to see (or read)?

In this free workshop, given by Haven-resident Janneke Rinzema, we will work on writing stories that put a smile on your face. With imaginative assignments and humorous exercises, you will be challenged to write from a new perspective. Together we will turn each one of you in a human being that not only your mom finds funny, but even makes the dog smile.

Where: Concept 2092 by Haven for Artists, Armenia Street (behind Spoiler Center)
