Choosing a narrative point of view – first person, third person, omniscient or free indirect – is among the biggest decisions a writer will face when composing a story. In two sessions, acclaimed novelist and short-story writer, Stinging Fly editor Seán O’Reilly will explore of the range narrative points of view available to the contemporary writer, discussing the merits and pitfalls of each. Irony – the reader’s appetite for it and the writer’s attempt to orchestrate it – will also be a central theme.
