Neurologists call it “the pleasure of the text,” the reward readers get from figuring out figurative language. (It can be quite a reward: If your wordplay is funny enough, your readers’ brains even deliver a little dose of dopamine.)
Learn to tap wordplay’s superpowers at Master the Art of Storytelling — our two-day creative-writing workshop on June 16-17 in Cincinnati.
There, you’ll learn to flip phrases; compress details; sub sound-alikes; list, rhyme and twist — even coin new words with free online tools that do most of the work for you. And you'll polish your skills in a wordplay workout, with recipes for wordplay from anagram to oxymoron.
