The PEI Writers' Guild is proud to present "Comedic Storytelling," a three part workshop on Tuesdays in February. Whether you're considering dipping your toe into stand up comedy, prepping for your next fringe show, or you just want to tell better stories at parties, Heather Jordan Ross (BBC Radio 4, OutTV) is here to help you talk funny.

Over the course of three online classes, you'll be introduced to joke structure, performance technique, and story-shaping. Along with field notes on best practise, you'll workshop your way from landing a joke to crafting a great story. 

Think you've got something funny to say? Ready to take your skills to the next level? Then what are you waiting for? Heather Jordan Ross is here to help.  

The workshop will run on Tuesdays, Feb 2nd, 9th and 16th from 6:30-8:30pm. Cost is $40 for PEI Writers' Guild members and $50 for non-members. Once you are registered, you will receive an email link on how to join the workshop via Zoom. 

For this workshop, we ✨two ✨ bursary spots for BIPOC + LGBTQ+ creators, or those with limited income. Accepting applications until Jan 28th, email us at peiwritersguild@gmail.com (subject line: bursary) and tell us why you’d be a good fit!
