Your friends think you’re funny, your family thinks you’re funny, and your sensibility is more Sedaris than Sartre. So why does your writing often wind up so dry? In this session, we’ll start chipping away at the Fear of Funny, and explore the ways that writers can–and should–use their sense of humor in their work. Hecklers will be swiftly removed.

Dan Zevin is a Thurber Prize-winning humorist. Dan has been an award-winning humor columnist for the New York Times, a comic commentator for NPR, and a contributor to print and digital publications including The New Yorker, McSweeney’s, Rolling Stone, Salon, the L.A. Times, Real Simple, and Parents, among others. His latest project is a series of picture book parodies based on the classic Mr. Man and Little Miss stories.
