2018 Bombeck workshop faculty
Donna Cavanagh is founder of HumorOutcasts.com (HO) and the partner publishing company, HumorOutcasts Press (humor books), which expanded to include the labels Shorehouse Books and Corner Office Books so authors of all genres would be represented. Cavanagh launched HO as an outlet for writers to showcase their work in a world that offered few avenues for humor. HO now features the creative talents of more than 100 aspiring and accomplished writers, TV and movie producers, filmmakers, comics and authors from all over the world. A former journalist, Cavanagh’s syndicated columns have appeared in First Magazine, USA Today and other national media. She has penned four humor books Reality: Fantasy’s Evil Twin, Try and Avoid the Speed Bumps, A Canine’s Guide to the Good Life (which she wrote with her dogs Frankie and Lulu) and the USA Books Contest finalist Life On the Off Ramp. Cavanagh hopes her latest book How to Write and Share Humor: Techniques to Tickle Funny Bones and Win Fans will encourage writers not only to embrace their humor talents but show them off as well.
