The Intricacies of Viewpoint
This is a single module (the fifth within the Emerging Writers' Course) that covers units concerning point of view in fiction. Participants will learn about different viewpoints, along with the potential effects upon narrative of using any given point of view. Participants will study the effects of different points of view upon story aesthetics, including the varying degrees/sense of distance, time and space that can be achieved through manipulating points of view. Effects associated with the unreliable narrator will also be investigated. Consisting of three units, this module contains various writing exercises and recommended readings.
