Writing Multiple Point of View Stories [Jason Skipper]
Stories told through multiple points of view can provide readers with a broad experience of the narrative at hand. We’ll learn to write insightful and character-driven multiple-point-of-view narratives, critically analyzing stories from the masters, including Alice Munro, George Saunders, Yiyun Li, and Julia Alvarez. These writers are experts at juggling different experiences and maintaining clarity, capturing distinct perspectives and voices, and weaving them together to create a unified pattern. With this insight, we’ll practice these techniques for our own multiple point-of-view narratives. Though this class will focus on literary short fiction, these techniques transcend boundaries of genre and can be applied beyond this workshop to longer narratives, nonfiction, and poetry.
