Point of view: What’s the big deal?

Point of view—you don’t even know what it is until you try to write fiction. Then the questions pile up. Whose story is this? First person or third? What about multiple points of view? How can I tell the reader what the narrator doesn’t know? How to handle point-of-view shifts? How does POV relate to narrative voice? How to deepen viewpoint? This workshop explores all these questions with examples and writing exercise.
