Perfecting & Subverting Point of View

Member Price: $15

Non-Member Price is $25

**This event will be recorded. Registrants can access the recording for 30 days.


What point of view to use is one of the most important decisions a writer has to make. Point of view helps readers connect with the story, changes the tone of the work, and can add depth and richness to a story. Experimenting with point of view can add new levels of skill to your writing. In this workshop, we'll go over the rules of point of view and learn when and how to break them, and practice the different ways to approach POV with guided generative writing exercises.


Participants will leave the session with enhanced understanding of point of view and possibly two first drafts of stories

Intended audience:

Writers of every skill level
