This pilot episode quickly introduces editor Jessica Petersen and writers Tracey Shearer and Anne M. Belen.

They then hop right into the different kinds of POV (Point of View) authors can choose from and noted industry trends, before exploring the importance of keeping POV consistent and what your genre might mean for making that decision. They also discuss the pros and cons of First and Third Person POV, why no one seems to want to touch Second Person that often, and when and how to use Omniscient effectively.

Anne confesses to some newbie trauma in her early writing years, Tracey drops a few technique tips, and, as always, Jessica offers industry insights.
