POV: The Basics and Beyond [Waverly Fitzgerald]
We’ll explore the many choices a writer makes about point of view. We’ll tackle first-, second-, and third-person narration and how they shape our fiction, nonfiction, and memoir. Then we’ll explore subtler aspects of POV, including level of penetration (how deep the author reveals the inner workings of a character), retrospection (where the narrator is in time), the omniscient or storytelling voice, and the skill of shifting POV. Write six stories (or one story six ways).
