EGL 25 W — Who's Telling Your Story: A Study in Point of View
This course is open to writers of all levels who are working on either short or longer fiction.
This is the fourth course of the four-quarter sequence, “The Craft of Creative Writing: The Telling Tools.” The four courses focus on Description (Fall 2018), Character (Winter 2019), Scene (Spring 2019), and Point of View (Summer 2019). These courses are less workshop-oriented than most of our Creative Writing courses, instead devoting each quarter to an intensive and wide-ranging practicum in a key question of craft. While these courses build upon one another, each course can be taken independently as well.
