Manuscript Review at Wesleyan Writer’s Conference

I spent three days at the Wesleyan writer’s conference last week.  My manuscript review went well, as I received the objective feedback that I needed.  The reviewer, Jay O’Shea, recommended that I study the humorists as there is a structure for humor that involves building tension before resolving that tension humorously.  I was given (voluntary) reading assignments that range from Bill Bryson to Mark Twain.  The Library of America has published an anthology of American humorists, so I bought that while I was at the conference.
