When you write a story, do you ever stop to consider who you’re telling the story to? We’re not talking about the real-life author and the real-life audience demographics. We’re talking about what’s going on within the fictional pocket universe of the story you’ve created. Who is the narrator telling the story to within the universe of the story? And why is the narrator telling their story to that person? What’s the relationship between them? Sci-fi/fantasy author Karlo Yeager Rodríguez
joins us to talk about the relationship between storyteller and in-universe audience.
