Event description

Description

Point of view is a challenge for beginning and experienced fiction writers, who wrestle with inadvertent point-of-view shifts or the inevitable limitations of the point of view they have chosen to tell their story. Through the use of examples of writing that handles point of view well and badly, this class will teach you to avoid common errors, and help you select the most appropriate point of view for the story you want to tell. Before class, students should familiarize themselves with the basics of first, second and third-person point of view (limited and omniscient): query the Flatiron Writers Room if you want recommendations for helpful craft books that cover this topic.

About the instructor: Heather Newton’s novel Under The Mercy Trees (HarperCollins 2011) won the Thomas Wolfe Memorial Literary Award, was chosen by the Women’s National Book Association as a Great Group Reads Selection and named an “Okra Pick” by the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance (“great southern fiction fresh off the vine”). A practicing attorney, she has taught creative writing for UNC-Asheville’s Great Smokies Writing Program and the NC Writers Network and is Program Manager for the Flatiron Writers Room.
