Close Encounters of the Third-Person Kind

Point of view is one of the most complex elements of writing fiction, and third-person POV can be especially nuanced in terms of its tone, language, and narrative distance. This class will take a look at the qualities that comprise so-called “close third-person” POV and will explore some in-class exercises to hone our use of it.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
