Point of view with Anthony Macris

Learn about one of the most important techniques in fiction writing, and one of the most neglected.

Point of view is one of the most important techniques in fiction writing, and one of the most neglected. Get it right from the start, and you’ll be able to construct narratives where voice, character and story work seamlessly together. Get it wrong though, and you might find yourself having to completely rewrite or, even worse, throw away large amounts of material.

This 1-day workshop with Anthony Macris will help you understand the full potential of 1st and 3rd person points of view, and how to avoid common pitfalls in their use. Participants will learn how to use 1st person in ways that develop voice and perspective, and allow a broad range of characters to share centrestage. The 2 most commonly used (and misused) modes of 3rd person narration – omniscient and subjective – will be looked at, as well as the tricky art of having multiple 3rd person narrators in a single story.

This workshop aims at demystifying point of view technique. The session also aims to help you give readers what they want: well-structured stories with vibrant characters and clearly articulated voices.
