Description

In this 5-week course, we’ll talk about all points of view (POV), but we’ll focus primarily on 3rd person-close, which is perhaps the most commonly used POV. We will look at excerpts from short stories and novels and engage in exercises that focus on improving participants’ understanding of and facility with 3rd person-close POV. Participants will use these exercises to create work at home, which we will workshop during class. “My goal,” says instructor Lori Ostlund, “is for us to think about this important craft element in ways that are instructional but also flexible and generative, and for you to leave this class with the tools and confidence to continue exploring 3rd person-close in your own writing."
