Pamela Schoenewaldt, novelist, short story writer, and experienced teacher helps you find, define, and empower the all-important point of view that makes (or breaks) your story. This workshop is valuable for writers at all stages, in genres as diverse as poetry, long and short fiction, and memoir.


We’ll look at how point of view drives character, plot and setting. We’ll discuss classic options: first, second, and many variations of third person, outlining strengths and challenges for each. A few short, fun exercises let you discover how the “right” point of view can dramatically unstick problem pieces and reveal new depth and possibilities in your work.


Pamela Schoenewaldt’s prize winning short stories have been published internationally. Her first three novels were with HarperCollins, including a USAToday Bestseller. She has taught fiction writing for many years and has given many popular KWG workshops.


Please bring something to write with and on, some story ideas if you have them (not required), and be ready to amaze yourself.  Questions? Contact Pamela Schoenewaldt at 


Workshop will run two hours, 10:00 am to noon.
