JOIN US SATURDAY, AUGUST 8th as we polish our POV!

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
o   First person
o   Third person
·         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. 


Henry’s novel, Journey to Riverbend, won the Operation First Novel award sponsored by the Christian Writers Guild and was published by Tyndale House in January, 2011.

Henry has a life-long love for the American West and the stories of the people who lived there. In his fiction, he seeks to bring their adventures to life, to show the struggles and triumphs over man and nature that helped build a strong people.

Henry and his wife of nearly fifty years live in North Texas. From this base, they enjoy their church, their friends and traveling, especially to visit their far-flung family.
