Want to write a memoir? Bestselling author gets you off on the 'write' foot!
How many times have you thought you'd like to write a memoir?'
Perhaps people are always telling you that you should write a book about your life?
But where do you start?
Well help is at hand, because bestselling author and award-winning publisher Melinda Ferguson is launching her online writing course, 'The Magic of Making a Start'.
Ferguson's own memoirs - Smacked, Hooked and Crashed - are all bestsellers and she's also responsible for publishing critically acclaimed works by Pumla Dineo Gqola, Samantha Cowen and Lindiwe Hani under her MFBooks Joburg imprint.
She caught up with Late Nights host and author of MFBooksJoburg's 'Killing Karoline', Sara-Jayne King to tell her more about the course.
I've written the course, divided in 6 modules over an 8 week course. It's called 'The Magic of Making A Start' and that's the key for most people, making a start.Melinda Ferguson, author and publisher
For the last 18 months, Melinda has been holding writing workshops in Cape Town and Johannesburg and says she's unearthed some incredible talent.
A lot of people who come are not actually writers, but they've got a little voice in their heads that says, 'I love writing'.Melinda Ferguson, author and publisher
