Who Is Telling Your Story?
An Exploration of Point of View
Point of View. We’ve all heard it but we’re not always clear on what it means or why a solid and consistent point of view is so crucial to our story.
In this class we will discover
·The importance of point of view
·Deciding which character or characters will tell the story
·The differences kinds of point of view
·And the subtle differences in various types of third person
·How the point of view choice affects the telling of the story
·We’ll explore the strengths and weaknesses of each
·We’ll identify traps and pitfalls that can limit or distort the point of view and jerk the reader out of the story
We’ll come out of the class with a clearer understanding of point of view and the impact of this concept on our story telling.
