Learn about POV options and pitfalls and how to deepen readers’ engagement with your characters.
W. H. Horner, a faculty mentor with Seton Hill University’s Writing Popular Fiction MFA program, will work through fundamental aspects of writing fiction. Attendance is limited. Handouts and worksheets will be provided. Attendees should bring a three-ring notebook and paper. What is point of view? How can authors use POV choices to provide engaging reading experiences for their readers? All these questions and more will be answered in this focused workshop. W. H. Horner will walk attendees through a number of issues related to point of view, focusing on ways to deepen their engagement with their characters in order to give readers the intense experiences they crave. Writing exercises will include experimenting with various point of view techniques, making one’s writing reflect the point of view character’s attitudes and emotions, and recognizing problems in point of view execution.
