Point of view (or POV) is one of those tricky, technical elements in writing that can be a challenge for many writers. Together with voice, point of view helps establish the narration for your writing, and narration is the crucial link between you (the writer) and your readers.
In this course from DIY MFA's Gabriela Pereira, you will become intimately familiar with each of the major viewpoints. With the help of practical writing exercises in each lesson, you'll understand what it takes to become a master of POVs!
What you'll learn in this course
- How to write in the 1st Person
- The differences between 3rd Person Limited and Omniscient
- The strengths (and dangers) of 2nd Person
- How to wrangle multiple POVs
- Epistolary and Journal forms
