Speaker: Beth Yarnall

Going Deep into Deep Point of View

Have you ever felt that a scene wasn’t working, but you couldn’t figure out why? Could be you were writing it from the wrong character’s point of view (POV). Whether you write in first person, third person, omniscient or a combination of POV’s, the reader should be clear about whose head they’re in and most importantly… why. Deep POV is achieved when the writer so fully immerses herself and the reader into the characters’ head and heart that the writer virtually disappears, drawing the reader deeper into the story.

In this hands-on, one hour workshop, attendees will learn about the different kinds of point of view, choosing the right POV, when, how, and why to shift point of view, deep POV, and more.

Look for the companion novel Going Deep into Deep Point of View in Beth’s Crafting Unputdownable Fiction series wherever print and ebooks are sold.
