From the beginning of any writing project, an important decision is required. How will the story be told? From whose point of view? From what distance? How will the reader react to the voice of the story—the personality that comes off the page? This writing workshop will focus on point of view and narrative voice in both fiction and nonfiction.
In this three-hour workshop, we’ll explore the point of view and narrative voice by looking at models from literature, experimenting with the different options, and discussing the pros, cons, and pitfalls of each.
Who's it For:
This class is for writers of all levels interested in deepening their craft.
When does this class meet?
This class meets on Saturday, May 2nd from 2-5pm.
