Gay Sketches, You Gays!
There’s nothing gayer than a three-hour writing workshop during pride. Nothing! We’ll focus on strengthening and clarifying your sketch’s game so you can better unleash some queer nonsense on the world. Bring in three pitches and one printed sketch (no more than four pages). Writers should be LGBTQIA+. Sketches and pitches can identify as anything.
Prerequisite: Completion of Sketch 101 or equivalent experience
