Multiple Viewpoints with Suzy Vitello

May 4, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Wondering whether your novel would benefit more from a first- or third-person narrator?

Or how many characters in your novel or story should have a point of view?

How about narrative distance?

This craft-based talk will illuminate some of the narrative possibilities and decisions a writer should weigh when it comes to deciding on viewpoint.

Here are some of the areas Suzy will cover:

  • Point of view options.
  • A decision-making tool kit to use for your next project.
  • Squeezing the maximum from your chosen POV strategy to apply to your current project or projects.
  • Clear guidance on what the various narrative options buy you, as well as their limitations.

This meeting will take place online from 7:00 to 8:30 PM.
