Welcome to Selwyn's Website-SelwynMilborrow.Com
I am an author, poet, freelance journalist, podcaster and blogger. I wrote a weekly column for News24 media, Die Burger. My poetry and short stories in both English, Afrikaans, and Dutch languages were published in various anthologies. Some serve as prescribed texts for high school learners. I have published three poetry books for grade ten and twelve learners. My books are available in municipal and university in South Africa.
Iím a CNN iReporter and performed and presented poetry workshops at the Grahamstown National Arts festival and literary and cultural events in South Africa. I had the opportunity to present workshops with Belgian youth writers at several South African high schools. The Write Side is my third poetry book, and Shades of forgiveness is my latest novel. My poetry and articles are featured on websites in South Africa and the website of the University of Wisconsin in the USA.
My latest writing offering: The MasterClass Writing Series that I present is based on my personal writing experiences as a young boy growing up in Apartheid South Africa. I believe your story can touch the world. I have never met an author who was sorry for writing a book. I have only met authors who were sorry they didnít write sooner. Itís time to stop talking to people about your book thatís in your head. Itís time to write.
