Point of View: Who? You? Me?with Chloe Yelena Miller
In this workshop, we will discuss point of view in general and as it relates specifically to a piece of writing that you are currently working on. Your goal is always to craft a clear and consistent narrative; a clear point of view can help with this. While you want to surprise your reader with your writing, you never want to confuse them. We will look closely at a few examples (first, second and third) and see what happens when the point of view changes. We will dedicate half of our time to completing a hands-on writing exercise.
