Point of view is arguably the most important craft element of a creative work. But creating stunning stories goes beyond the basic point of view and into a deeper understanding of narrative distance and the stakes of your work. In this three-hour workshop, we’ll discuss how to choose a point of view, the benefits and pitfalls of each option, and ways to avoid head-hopping and point of view errors. Participants will practice writing in multiple point of views and will have the opportunity to share their work.
This is an interactive online class using the Zoom web platform.
