During this session we will examine techniques to successfully manage a large cast of characters, whether they are family members, coworkers, or members of the same military squadron. We'll look at how to shift from one POV to the next, how to manipulate narrative distance to make some voices more prevalent than others, and how to keep all of these voices distinct.
