  • Writers often put more thought into the title of their story than choosing their point of view. But Liz Prato, author of Baby’s on Fire, knows that POV controls the intimacy, breadth and depth of our stories.

    On December 6th, Liz Prato will join Willamette Writers at the Historic Old Church in Portland to show us how to master point of view. In this illuminating presentation, she’ll lead us through contemporary examples of how POV works in fiction and nonfiction, from the modern classics of Harper Lee and J.D. Salinger to contemporary works from Jo Ann Beard and Nick Hornby. This talk will open up new worlds that will transform your writing and revising process.

    Liz has been teaching writing since 2008, and her workshops are interactive and transformative. You can find out more about her at

    Before you join us, take a moment to consider the POV of your own current projects. Then, Prato will help you rethink the power and possibility of POV.

    Liz will join Willamette Writers PDX at the Historic Old Church in Portland, Oregon on December 6th. Willamette Writers members and full time college students under 25 attend for free, guests pay 5 dollars (includes MeetUp Guests). Doors open at 6:30PM. The meeting begins at 7:00PM and ends at 8:15PM. Come early for the networking, and stay late to buy a book and get it signed by Liz. We look forward to seeing you!

    Willamette Writers Portland meets on the first Tuesday of the month, 7:00-8:15 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm) at the Historic Old Church in downtown Portland. No meetings in August.
