What is your story - sign
A masterclass on points of view: when writing your book, you need to consider who the main storyteller is and what their perspective is.

About this event

In this month's SilverWood Book Writing Club masterclass, you'll learn how writing from different points of view can enhance your book.

When writing your book, the point of view shows who is telling the story. By choosing a particular point of view, you are deciding and controlling what the reader will find out about the arena you’re introducing them to. You'll need to consider how your storyteller sees events, what they know about those events, what they're influenced by and how reliable they are.

Our guest speaker UK Ghostwriter Tom Henry will explore:

  • Different points of view - which to use in memoir, fiction, and non-fiction or business books
  • Does choosing a particular point of view limit you as a writer or does it sharpen your focus?
  • How to build readers' trust in the storyteller's point of view
  • Reasons to switch between different points of view
  • How can you introduce other points of view without disrupting the flow of your words?

  • Tom Henry is a professional freelance ghostwriter, working mainly in the area of non-fiction. He has ghosted over 25 books, including Stephen Hendry's biography, Me and the Table, Barry Cryer's Butterfly Brain and Alexander Khan's Orphan of Islam. He supported SilverWood author, Roland Chesters, to complete Ripples From The Edge Of Life.

    There will be a session at the end to answer your questions and help you overcome any challenges in your writing. And we have a members group to stay in touch between events and a regular members Zoom call too - all included in the price of your ticket. Book now to join us!
