Exploring Deep Point of View: Fiction and Memoirs

Join Us!

Our class on Deep Point of View (DPOV) in fiction and memoirs delves deeply into the perspectives of your characters.

The course begins by laying the groundwork of Point of View (POV), differentiating between First Person (1st POV) and Third Person (3rd POV). We examine the specifics of each, covering aspects like pronoun usage and narrative perspective, and offer insights into crafting engaging stories using one of the other POVs.

The focus then shifts to DPOV, a narrative technique that immerses readers by merging the narrator’s and protagonist’s viewpoints. This section discusses DPOV’s benefits in enriching reader engagement and its implementation in notable literature.

We study the common challenges in maintaining a consistent POV, highlighting frequent mistakes and ways to rectify them. Please bring your work-in-progress to practice refining DPOV.

By the end of the class, you will have a thorough understanding of DPOV, gaining the ability to create stories that vividly portray characters’ inner worlds. This knowledge is crucial for those aiming to write engaging novels or memoirs, making DPOV an invaluable element in your writer’s toolkit.
