June Meeting – SUSAN MULLER
Digging Deep – Enhancing your story with Deep POV
A basic understanding of POV (Point of View) is essential for any writer. It grounds the reader as to who is speaking and what is happening in the story. Deep Point of View takes this skill one step further, allowing the writer to create an intimate portrait full of rich characterization and eliminating show/don’t tell issues.
We will use examples of different stages of POV and experiment with incorporating senses and emotions as well as using setting or descriptions to deepen POV. We will learn how to stay in the moment, even if it’s in the past or future and how to use italics without yanking the reader out of the story.
This is an interactive workshop, so you are welcome to use passages from your WIP as we hunt for ways to deepen POV.
