Understanding Point of View with Victoria Landis In-Person
Attention all writers! Join us for a workshop led by a published author!
There are crucial choices to make before you write your novel. What is a POV? How many POVs are necessary to accomplish what you want the reader to experience? How do you decide which character(s) will tell the story? This interactive workshop will help you determine those answers, as well as help you understand how to use POV to enhance your characters (and make your reader love them) and avoid mistakes. Bring paper and pen or a laptop/tablet so you can participate.
