We’re debuting this program with our Managing Editor, James Folta. James has worked one-on-one with writers in NYC, and teaches comedy classes on parody and humor writing for NYC's Magnet Theater and elsewhere; he co-created and co-edited The New Yorker parody, The Neu Jorker, and the political satire project, Paul Ryan magazine; he is the co-creator of The Satire and Humor Festival and hosts a monthly reading series called "An Evening of Humorous Readings"; and he is regularly published by The New Yorker, McSweeney’s, and more.
From a first draft to final copy, we offer feedback and guidance for writing at any stage.
Punch up your writing and technique with us through:
- One-on-One Coaching ($49) - Spend a full hour via video chat working on your comedy. Use this time to workshop articles, get feedback on ideas and premises, explore alternate directions or formats, expand your premises and angles, hone your comedic voice and toolkit, and more. Schedule a time that works for you.
- In-Depth Feedback ($29) - Get detailed insight and feedback on one article: how it’s working, where it could use improvement, and what's falling flat—plus tried and true comedy strategies for your work. These notes are designed to strengthen both your article and your humor writing process in general.
Please note that standard PIC content submissions are free, and our editorial process will always be unbiased.
