The Eyes Have It: Mastering Point of View Brings your Fiction to Life

Point of view is the perspective a writer uses to bring you into the world he/she has created. Mastering point of view and active voice is how you grab your audience and create a moving piece of fiction. Whatever your genre, understanding point-of-view is critical. This class will go behind first person vs third person decisions to address how internalizing point-of-view subtleties can help you create vivid descriptions, spell-binding action sequences, and layered world-building. Explore how to develop dimensional characters with fully realized inner lives. Avoiding common mistakes in establishing point-of-view will impress editors and help you take your fiction to the next level. This workshop include discussion, short readings, and in class writing exercises. Stacy Ericson is an editor and a fiction writer. She has an editor's eye for problems and a poet's heart for passion and can help you make your writing soar.
