Instructor: Samar Farah Fitzgerald
Cost: $60 Members | $65 Non-Members

LIMITED TO 12 STUDENTS.

Ever feel indecisive about what point of view is best for the story you want to tell? This seminar will explore the artistic advantages of third-person storytelling. We’ll break down the mechanics of the third-person point of view, question established myths about the third person, and take a close look at famous examples of third-person narratives. We’ll also use short writing prompts to become more comfortable with the point of view.
