    Third person, first person, multiple viewpoints, single—all of it can be confusing. What works? When to change viewpoint? And how do you take POV so deep a reader feels everything a character feels? This workshop covers some basic elements of POV control, including how to make better choices for which character's viewpoint to use and how to write deep POV that compels a reader's attention. Exercises will be offered to sharpen POV control, one of the most fundamental, and strongest techniques in any writer's tool box.
