CRAFT A LA CARTE: POINT OF VIEW

Point of View (POV), otherwise known as the narrating voice of your novel, is one of the first and most important decisions a writer makes when starting a new work. Whether to write in first person or third person--how do you decide on the POV for your novel? How do you know which style of narration is right for your story? This two-hour intensive is full of tips and exercises to help you examine the pros and cons of our POV choices and will examine how “who tells the story controls the story.”

FIRST CHAPTERS, FIRST IMPRESSIONS

The opening of your story or novel has a huge list of responsibilities. The opening is the first impression—for agents, for editors, and for readers. The opening must create a story promise and pull the reader into the story world. It sets events in motion and establishes a mood and tone. We meet a voice and sense the story’s purpose…and decide whether or not to keep reading. This intensive two-hour class will offer tips to hone an opening, as well as warn you of traps and pitfalls to avoid. We’ll look at plenty of published samples. You don’t need to have a completed draft or even a polished opening to benefit, but bring your first page if you have one.
