February Workshop: The Power of POV with Pamela Schoenewaldt

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.

The workshop, sponsored by the Knoxville Writers Guild, will be given Saturday, February 18, from 10 a.m. to noon at Central United Methodist Church, 201 Third Avenue, Knoxville. The cost is $50, with 40% discount for Guild members and 50% for students. Some scholarships are available.

Workshop Description

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.

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. Register online.
