"Point of View + Voice"
with Carmen Goldthwaite
Award-winning author, teacher, and storyteller Carmen Goldthwaite will cover how the point of view you choose impacts your storytelling. She'll also tackle how to weave in your writer voice to make your story resonate. She will use literary examples from fiction and non-fiction to illustrate these concepts.
