I Am What I Am: An Exploration of First Person


First person is often considered a straightforward point of view: "I" sees, "I" tells. In this workshop, we'll delve into the first-person point of view and how to use it to its full advantage. We'll talk about ways to gain the equivalent of psychic distance when writing in first person; we'll also look at examples of first person plural, narrators with obsessions, and the unreliable narrator. And of course we'll try our hand at some of the narrative techniques we examine.
