Point of view and voice: how to use them well in your creative writing

Got a strong desire to write or improve your creative writing? This is for you.

Designed for the published and not-yet-published author alike, this 90-minute workshop will consider point-of-view (POV) in writing, and authorial voice.

Lead by award-winning author, Joy Rhoades, you’ll look at the elements of the three main POV or perspectives and examples of each. 

You’ll have a chance to apply newfound principles to you own writing via multiple exercises throughout the workshop. You’ll also have the chance to read some of that work aloud, if you wish to, in a supportive environment. Bring along a short piece of your own writing if you’d like to work on that in the context of the class. Joy will also cover the essentials of a writing life, sharing practical tips to get you writing and reading regularly. 


Places are strictly limited, so you’re advised to book early.

PLEASE BOOK ONLY IF YOU CAN ATTEND!
