Preliminary Program Grid for Meriah Lysistrata Crawford
This is the Preliminary program schedule. Meriah Lysistrata Crawford may or may not actually be on these items, but probably will. However, due to circumstances beyond our control, modifications to the program can occur throughout the convention.
|Friday 8:00 pm: Point of View Workshop (Ends at: 9:55 pm) Seneca|
Coordinator:Meriah Lysistrata Crawford (M)
Many people think of POV as just a choice between first and third, and then omniscient, limited omniscient, or limited--or other similarly confusing terminology. But POV is really far more complex than that. Coming to a clearer understanding of the very wide array of options available to you will help you write more effective, more powerful fiction, and will help you avoid the POV violations that are common in fiction. Join us! Chocolate will be provided.
Limited to 15 people
