In this workshop, we will look at the way a character’s blind spots can be revealed in POV shifts, and also what Fernanda Melchor calls the “experimental ego that is character development.” What happens in a novel when a writer experiments with multiple egos at once? How do those simultaneous experiments shape the narrative that develops?
