Points of View as Points of Light

All Levels | Point of view presents many possibilities for vision and revision. In firsts and thirds and seconds, in closeness and omniscience, in singularity and plurality, point of view can be used to reimagine minds and hearts, to guide the reader through imagined worlds like points of light. In revision, POV can be used to give the work itself light — to see something in a character or a scene that maybe wasn’t visible or apparent. In this workshop, we’ll look at POV as a tool for revision. Bring a piece in progress with which to experiment.

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.
