Point of View: The Basics and Then Some, an online course

Feb 1 – Mar 1, 2021

When it comes to the lens through which readers will see their story, writers have decisions to make. Third person or first? Limited or omniscient? And what about the nuances within each category? Once you have chosen who will tell your story, the fun part begins: making sure to stay true to the point of view and use it to your work’s greatest advantage. This workshop will begin with an overview of POV, then look deeper into the various perspectives you have to choose from. 

Using recordings, resource links, practice exercises and discussion boards, students access materials and post on their own schedule. (No “real time” meetings.) For maximum benefit and interaction, participants will  post work weekly and respond to other students’ writing as well. (4 modules, 1 per week with an additional week to view materials and responses.)  We use the PowerSchool platform.
