Deep POV Class at Seekerville

Hi, Everyone:

Just a note to any writers among you. I am teaching my Deep Point of View class through Seekerville in May. The class starts on May 5 and runs all month long. Cost is a pittance ($25).

Here's the info:

Have you ever read a book that melded your mind with the main character’s psyche? At no time did you sense that an invisible narrator stood between you and the Point of View character. Line by line, scene by scene, you lived in that central character’s head. The hero or heroine’s every experience became yours, and your reading pleasure intensified. Why? How did that happen? What did the writer do to gain that affect? The technique is called Deep Point of View. Even a novice writer is familiar with the concept of “point of view.” Most of us even know the difference between first person and third person, as well as the concept of tenses: past, present, and future. Deep Point of View puts basic POV on steroids. The technique tightens, solidifies and strengthens your manuscript. As a stellar side-effect, many of those pesky problems with “show/don’t tell” will fade away like a bad memory. In this course, we’ll plumb the depths (pun intended) of this fun and fundamental skill.

Understand the difference between Basic Point of View and Deep Point of View.

Learn what Deep POV is, what it is not, and what it can do for your writing.

Grasp the methodology of Deep POV through simple, practical, and specific techniques.

Practice the application of Deep POV through guided exercises

Practice the application of Deep POV in your own manuscripts
