Point of View

If you missed September’s meeting, you missed a good one. There was excellent discussion around the room prior to Wayne Karlin joining us, and while his talk was brief, it was full of useful information.

Through exploration of Hemingway’s Hills Like White Elephants, Karlin illustrated how much can be conveyed to readers through various points of view. At the end of the discussion, attendees rewrote a few lines from the piece in a point of view different than the one used.

This is an area that writers at all levels struggle with at times, and Karlin’s talk clarified and elucidated the benefits of using various points of view. Write on!
