In this lecture style presentation, Erin will offer some of the general ideas around POV to help understand the question of why YOU have been cast. From here she will present the idea of the "Family of Leads” and why we always mine the text for how and WHY these characters are even in the book to begin with.
Then Erin will look into the different choices and qualities of voice we have available to create these real people. Making truthful and diverse storytelling character choices is the way to make a book rise to the top!
