Is Your POV Slip Showing?
Presented by Chris Devlin

Do you get critiqued on your point of view? Confused about the difference between third person close vs. third person omniscient? Ever wonder what “wandering point of view” really means? Join writer and RMFW Contest Chair Chris Devlin for an interactive workshop on point of view. This session will cover the basics of different point of view options for your story: first person, third person omniscient, and third person close. We’ll discuss the benefits and drawbacks, including the common pitfalls in creating each type, loaded with lots of published examples. We’ll also illustrate points of view in other mediums like movies and TV, and how writers can use these perspectives to sharpen up their storytelling.
Bring the first two pages of your work-in-progress for a chance at a group critique and discussion of point of view possibilities.
