While pronouns are the most visible indicator of viewpoint, they are only the most elementary of building blocks. Narrative and temporal distance, filters, voice, and ultimately, depth, have far more to do with viewpoint in storytelling than pronouns. Readers may not be able to articulate the importance of viewpoint to their immersion and willingness to stay with a story, but problems with viewpoint will still cause them to put your story down. In this class we will cover how viewpoint can grab a reader, immerse them in your story, flesh out characters, worldbuild, create tension and conflict, and ultimately help you show a better a story.
