ONLINE Point of View in Narrative: An In-Depth Look
When we approach writing a story we all have our favourite point of view we enjoy writing from, whether that be first person, third person, or maybe even second person. Have you ever asked yourself why you picked the point of view you did though? This workshop will be a detailed look at point of view in narrative. We’ll get into a nerdy level of detail about the benefits and drawbacks of each choice, and we’ll experiment with each of them so that you come away armed with the knowledge to make more deliberate choices with your approaches to your own projects.
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
