Sketch Workshop: How to Write for Women with Racquel Belmonte

January 26, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm

🔥How to Write for Women with Racquel Belmonte🔥

PART OF SMASH COMEDY FEST

Created as a direct response to the questionable and inappropriate female characters she and her female-identifying peers have had to play thus far in their sketch comedy careers, “How to Write for Women” is a workshop designed primarily for cis-men involved with or interested in sketch comedy who are wanting to become stronger allies within the community through their work and behavior. This workshop will focus on how to write and create diverse characters for female-identifying equals, and will explore topics of equality, stereotyping, gender norms, workplace dynamics, and the importance of inclusion and safety within our community- most particularly onstage and in the writer’s room.

This workshop will contain written and performed components, in addition to discussion. Though this workshop is mainly geared towards cis-male folks, anyone with a high interest in sketch comedy and/or pushing boundaries within their communities to create change is able to participate. All levels of experience are welcome.

Saturday 3:00pm to 5:30pm, $35.00 per person, Little Mountain Gallery
