Description

NOTE: IF YOU ARRIVE LATE, YOU ARE NOT GUARANTEED A SEAT.


Viewpoint / Point of View (POV) may be the most confusing technique to understand when writing fiction. Viewpoint is the identity and emotional focus of the person who relates the events of a story, i.e. the narrator. It is an important part of the relationship between writer and reader. It is about whose “eyes” we use to witness the action of the story. Point of View, on the other hand, is the way the narrator relates the story, i.e., voice (first person, third person) and tense (present, past). Often confused, these two techniques are separate, but joined at the hip. Enjoy this engaging discussion on how they relate to one other, and how they ultimately carry the story.
