Point of View: It’s more than First vs. Third

Every story has at least one “point of view,” but there is more to decide than First Person vs. Third Person. Join author Brad R. Cook July 9 to explore not only Limited, Omniscient, and Objective points of view, but what it all means when the words hit the page.

The workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to noon, at Kirkwood Community Center, 111 S. Geyer Rd, Kirkwood, Mo. Free to St. Louis Writers Guild members; $5 for nonmembers.

“Point of view is critical to a writer’s voice, the story’s structure, and what the reader learns,” Brad said.

Author of the young adult steampunk series, The Iron Chronicles (treehouse publishing group), Brad R. Cook will see the release of book three, Iron Lotus, in November 2016. A former co-publisher and acquisitions editor for Blank Slate Press, he is a member of SCBWI, and currently serves as Historian of St. Louis Writers Guild after three and half years as President. A founding contributor to The Writers’ Lens, a resource blog for writers, he can be heard weekly as a panelist on Write Pack Radio. He learned to fence at thirteen, and never set down his sword, but prefers to curl up with his cat and a centuries’ old classic.
