Rebecca Rogers - Workshop We all love to read a book that makes us laugh but writing a rib-cracking book is a serious business. In this workshop, aimed at beginners, Rebecca Rogers (The Purgatory Poisoning), winner of the Comedy Women in Print unpublished prize, will help you to create your funny novel. From exploring the big ideas (what actually is funny?) to looking at knee-slapping dialogue and character development, you’ll come away with a suitcase full of hilarious hints and tips to add fun to your manuscript.
