Let Your
Funny Flag Fly

Take your opportunity to learn the value of humor in both speaking and writing. We will discuss tools, techniques, where to find it, when to use it, and when not to use it. Examples will be woven in so the speakers and/or writers can better understand the concepts being presented. And, most importantly, they’ll be encouraged to enjoy the journey of writing, whether for the page or the stage.

Tammy Whitehurst
Motivational Speaker

“Shelli Ragle was a favorite among the participants in our Waco Christian Writers Workshop. In her session on humor writing, she led by example. She not only had us laughing, but gave our writers practical tips including where to find funny and where not to find it. She gave easy to remember tools for writing with humor. Her presentation was professional, practical, and memorable. She engaged, entertained, and educated.”

Michelle Ruddell

“At the Waco Christian Writers Workshop conference, I was delighted to hear Shelli Ragle speak about using humor in writing. I consider humor a very difficult topic, but Shelli connected well with the audience and made us feel like we could write humor, even if we're not naturally funny.”
