Building The Sketch Packet
Last year, SNL had open submissions* for writers requesting 3- 5 sketches: 1 commercial parody, 1 topical or political sketch, and the remainder being "whatever best represents your unique abilities." This workshop is designed to help writers assemble a portfolio of their work to present to potential showrunners, agents or managers as well as writers just looking for help getting out first drafts. The workshop focuses on writing topical and pop culture material as well as material that best reflects your own comedic sensibilities. We look at the submission requirements for actual shows to give writers an idea of what is expected during the submission process and writers receive feedback on their material.
