Satirical articles and headlines are some of the most shared items online today. The really good ones stay with you and come to mind when confronted with the absurdities that surround our everyday life. Learn to capture the tone of The Onion, The Beaverton, Reductress, and more with this class that explores how to write good satire and pin down the perfect headline to go with it.
