Panel at AWP 2016 in LA
April 2, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Here’s the official AWP skinny:
No Facts, Only Interpretations: An Examination of the Multiple Point of View Novel. (Eric Sasson, Anna North, Julia Fierro, Ellen Sussman, Rebecca Makkai) Five novelists who have experimented with point of view will discuss their POV choices and how those choices informed the tone and shape of their books. Does having multiple POVs—an accumulation of subjective perspectives—allow us to approach the “truth”? How do we decide that another POV is necessary to tell the story? What dangers arise when that POV is outside the writer’s gender, race, or sexuality? The panel examines the pitfalls and benefits that a writer who experiments with POV might encounter.
