Point of View (POV) is one of the trickiest bits of craft a writer needs to master. Get it right and your readers stay glued to the page. Get it wrong and they can’t keep track of who’s talking, thinking, or holding the gun.
You must select the right POV for your story. Should you choose first person, second person, third limited, omniscient, or one of a dozen variations? Should you change the narrator part way through, or use multiple points of view? If so, you need to know how and when to do it so your readers don’t get lost in the process.
This won’t be the easiest workshop you’ve ever taken, but it will be one of the most rewarding.
Enjoy a morning in the company of other writers who like to learn. You’ll see samples of the various POVs, and learn techniques you can use to master this tricky bit of craft.
