Hybrid Points of View

Intermediate | Can a work of fiction attain more than one “central consciousness” by combining different points of view? How might hybridizing first, second, or third-person increase the richness of a text, or undercut the ego of a story? This class will explore these questions, studying examples by authors such as Jennifer Egan, Claire Vaye Watkins, and Junot Díaz. Prospective students should have a basic understanding of how to manage point of view in fiction.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

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.
