If you’re signed up for the free, six-week humor writing mini-course and are looking for some extra examples of humor writing, I’ll be adding them here on an ongoing basis.

The Book That I Haven’t Started Writing Yet Will Be the Best Book Ever, by Annabelle Gurwitch in The New Yorker
Cozy Cardigan, cartoon by Roz Chast
The Winter Olympics, Abridged, by Alexandra Petri in The Washington Post
Hey, You Got Something to Eat? by a goat. (Commentary section in the Onion)
P.S. You can now get your copy of Adequate Yearly Progress: A Novel!
