Sharing the Camera: Playing with Unusual Points of View

We all know first-, third-, and even the oft-maligned second-person points of view. But it can be fun and instructive to try your hand at less-common narrative perspectives. In this light-hearted generative session, you’ll write multiple versions of a situation from some unusual and even wacky viewpoints. Come prepared to write something new and unexpected while having some laughs.


Naomi Williams is the author of Landfalls (FSG), long-listed for the Center for Fiction First Novel Prize, and the forthcoming story collection Strange Trouble (Melville House). Her short fiction and essays have appeared in numerous places, including One StoryElectric LiteratureZoetrope: All-StoryThe Rumpus, and LitHub. A five-time Pushcart nominee and one-time winner, Naomi has been awarded residencies at Hedgebrook, Djerassi, Willapa Bay AiR, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and Vermont Studio Center. A biracial Japanese-American, she was born in Japan and spoke only Japanese until she was six years old.
