Mastering Point of View at The Portobello Bookshop

Do you have an idea for a story but need advice on how the story is told?

As part of The Portobello Bookshop Masterclass Series, we are excited to welcome T.L. Huchu to the bookshop for an evening of Mastering Point of View.

This masterclass will take place in the bookshop. Your booking includes a complimentary notebook and pencil to take notes. During the evening of the masterclass, you will also be entitled to 10% discount on any of the books from T.L. Huchu's Edinburgh Nights Series.

T.L. Huchu is the author of the wonderfully atmospheric Edinburgh Nights Series, which is infused with magic, mystery and adventure. The series introduced readers to Ropa Moyo, a ghostalker and narrator of the books. Join us as Huchu speaks more on creating a strong point of view within a story through his own writing and exercises.

T.L. Huchu's writing has appeared in numerous publications, such as Lightspeed, Interzone, Analog Science Fiction and Fact and elsewhere. The Library of the Dead, the first book in his Edinburgh Nights Series, won Best Novel at the Nommo Awards, presented by the African Speculative Fiction Society. His work has been short-listed for awards such as the Caine Prize and the Grand Prix de l'Imaginaire. Between projects, Huchu translates fiction from Shona into English and the reverse.

Attendees will also have the opportunity for Huchu to proofread their work ahead of the masterclass and receive informed feedback.

Please note: Tickets for our events are non-refundable. Professional photography and videography may take place during this event. Thank you for your understanding.
