2021 WRITERS SERIES Session 7: Point of View | August 7th, 2021
Whose story is it, really? And is it best told in 1st or 3rd or something else all together? in this workshop we will explore our narrator's voice, experimenting with 1st person, 3rd limited, omniscient, and narrative distance in order to find that strongest, most compelling voice for our story. Expect to write to prompts and share your work.
