Literary Humor:  Tips and Techniques

 

THE AMANDA CHRONICLES!

A sophisticated satire column on a British-based international website “for women who weren’t born yesterday”. *

Imagine someone like Eloise (who was six and lived at the Plaza),

only very grown up and worldly wise.

That’s Amanda.

 Read  all eleven of The Amanda Chronicles here — and laugh!

(*I will be posting the published “Amandas” here soon – sadly, sadly, Amanda’s brilliant and wonderful publisher died  and the column is temporarily on hold.)

Sometimes humor is no laughing matter.

Read Seriously Funny about humor as a tool for political resistance here:
