Writing Workshops

The Power of POV in Storytelling with Keisha Bush


3 Online Sessions

Out of stock

Friday - Sunday June 24 to June 26, 2022

Online via Zoom

Meeting Times:
6-8pm ET (6/24), 2-4pm ET (6/25 & 6/26)

In this course we will explore the different points of view (POV) in story-telling and why a writer would choose one over the other. We’ll examine the differences between first, second and third person, what an omniscient POV is and the pros and cons to using it. We’ll also deep dive into first person distant and first person close, and third person distant and third person close and learn the power each wields—and last but not least, the secret sauce to second person story-telling.

Understanding some of the strengths and weaknesses within each POV will expand your toolbox of literary techniques and offer greater freedom to take risks you didn’t think possible within your writing. Be prepared to write, rewrite, and experiment in this class.

Capacity: 20
