Because of its non-profit status, Silver Pen will be able to apply for and accept grants to perform outreach programs to writers and publishers. Some of the services will include a free internet peer review process and a free registry for curriculum vitae of works written by Silver Pen members. We will also help members get published, whether they are looking at flash, short stories, novellas or full length novels.
The immediate plans include a workshop on Point of View, which will encompass many basic and advanced aspects of POV, including distant vs. far, internal vs. external, first, second and third person, singular vs. plural, narrator, omniscient, and many other facets of this keystone to a great story.
