Point of View with Priscilla Morris

What is narrative point of view? Why is it so important? How much can each narrator know and see?

In this fun, intensive workshop, you’ll be given a dossier of novel and short story excerpts from different genres to analyse. We’ll explore the pros and cons of writing in the first, second and third person. We’ll discuss how establishing consistency is paramount and how not to ‘slip out of point of view’. The main writing activity is often a penny-dropping moment!
