Limerick Writing Workshop

Learn the history and craft of the short, humorous verse that is often nonsensical and frequently ribald. Hewing perfectly to a meter and rhyme scheme is one of the things that make limericks funny, and a good limerick has a clever unanticipated punch line, along with puns, word play and other witty elements. With expert guidance, write your own and enter to win our 2020 Limerick contest with a live reading at the Center’s St. Patrick’s Day Festival, March 16. Price includes Irish cuisine and beer.

Instructor: Tyler Hausdoeffer
Cost: $40
When: March 11
