It’s You! Writing in Second Person


Point of view is often said to be the most important decision we make in writing prose, but that choice is often an unconscious one. This craft seminar invites participants to consciously explore second-person POV: how it can reveal character, heighten effect, draw the reader in. We’ll discuss examples from Jenny Offill, Jamaica Kinkaid, Junot Diaz, and Lorrie Moore and use a writing exercise to explore the rich potential of an underrated POV.
