Look Who's Talking...

I put on my red, fur-lined cloak, slip out of the house, and head for the woods.

You walked through the trees in your long mantel. You were the color of blood.

Little Red Riding Hood made her way through the tall trees, darkness and dread barring her way.

Who’s telling the story? To whom are they telling it? In what form? There are no questions more fundamental for the fiction writer, and none that have greater repercussions for story. 
The perspective from which a story is told, or the narrative point of view affects writer, characters, and reader alike. Please join us this Saturday for a two hour workshop on the choices the writer must make about the controlling perspective of the story, and ways these choices affect the narrative as a whole.

When:  Saturday, November 19th, 10 am - 12 pm
Where:  Thayer Memorial Library
Facilitator:  Hollis Shore
