Deepen Your Story with Deep POV

When we write our books in a shallow POV rather than in deep POV, we risk a “cricket chirping” response from our readers. We’re narrating a story that could come across as much more powerful if we chose to instead invite the reader to experience it. In this class, you’ll learn how to bring your writing to the next level by incorporating deep POV techniques that will bring your story world to life, allow your readers to feel the emotions, and invite them to connect with your POV characters on a much deeper level.
