SNL Writers Room (Sat)
with Liz Cackowski
(At least 1 year's experience recommended)
WELCOME TO THE SNL WRITERS ROOM
Comedy writer and SNL alumni Liz Cackowski takes students through what a week at Saturday Night Live is like as a writer. From brainstorming to pitching to writing to read-through to notes and rewriting, students will get as much of the SNL experience as can be fit into three hours.
Students will need to submit an original SNL-style sketch prior to class to share and work on.
