With information coming at us from all sides, at all times of the day, the world has become a here and now kind of place. No wonder authors, agents, editors and readers want to feel that same kind of immediacy with stories. They scream for deep point of view. And I mean deep!!
In this course we will:

Learn how word choices impact deep point of view.
Use descriptions that keep it deep.

Use dialog that rings true for characters.
Learn where to dive in the deepest and where and when to stay in the shallows.
Learn how to crack deep point of view in third and first person.
Learn quick fixes for deep point of view that can transform your manuscript.
And so much more!
With a plethora of examples, assignments, and Rhay’s–Let’s think about this–we’ll explore, discover, and unlock the mysteries of deep point of view.
About Rhay Christou: Two of the things I love are teaching and creative writing. With my MFA in writing from Vermont College, I have had the great fortune to combine them. I’ve taught everything from creative writing to academic writing at the university level as well as writing workshops in the USA and on the lovely island of Cyprus, where I live.
