POV What?

Point-of-view is often taught to us as if we were fifth graders. First person, second person, third — how useful is all that? In practice, POV is a near-infinite series of decisions that fiction writers make word by word, clause by clause. How do you select and organize details? How do you write about feelings? We’ll look at POV as a multi-dimensional web of super-complexity. If you’re working on something, bring in a few pages. If not, don’t worry. Either way, we’ll do some reading, writing, and merrymaking.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
