Event description


Helped by the popularity of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire (aka Game of Thrones), more readers than ever are falling in love with sprawling sagas told from the perspective of several key characters. While many authors are taking Martin's lead by using multiple points of view in their own books, there are certain things to keep in mind when telling this kind of story.

In this Reedsy Live webinar, editor Tracy Gold will share her five tips for juggling multiple POVs and show how they're handled in Game of Thrones. The talk will cover:

  • Choosing the right character for a scene
  • Avoiding confusing the reader
  • Whether to use first or third person
  • And more!

Tracy Gold is an editor, writer, and teacher who loves helping writers realize their visions for their stories. She edits children's books, literary and genre fiction, and memoir. After her talk, she will answer your questions in an exclusive Q&A. • Wednesday 12 June 2019 • 12 pm LA • 3 pm New York • 8 pm London
