What you'll learn in this writing class:

If you're ready to share a bold statement but want to leave a more lasting impact than you might with a Facebook rant, join us to explore the art of satire writing. For people who love The Onion, Reductress, McSweeney's and even Shakespeare, this class will offer an introductory lesson in satire, complete with writing exercises to help you hone the craft. We'll cover approaches to satire and topic generation, and will also offer tips for maximizing your potential.

Topics:
  • Approaches to satirical writing
  • Articulating a point of view
  • Applying the point of view to specific formats
  • Tips on becoming a better satire writer (and writer in general)
School Notes: OUTSIDE FOOD & DRINKS ARE NOT ALLOWED. QED has coffee, tea, soda, beer & wine plus snacks and pre-made wraps and sandwiches available.

Refund Policy
We require at least seven (7) days' notice before a class in order to issue a refund and there are no transfers to future classes allowed. We're a small operation and purchase our own supplies and keep classes extremely affordable, so we have to operate this way just to stay in business.

But, all is not lost, tickets are transferable meaning we will allow anyone to take your place in class, so check around with your friends to see if someone else would like your spot.

In case of bad weather, classes WILL always take place unless the subway system is closed down. If you have issues traveling, please keep this in mind when you purchase your ticket. If we do cancel for weather or an emergency, we will try to reschedule the class on the same day of the week at the same scheduled time as soon as possible. If you cannot make the rescheduled date, we will refund you the price of your seat.
