Author Interview
Author's Training School

Is God calling you to write a book? We want to help you.

The Author's Training School provides a supportive, incubator-like environment where you can work on your novel, memoir, or non-fiction book away from distractions. To make the course more accessible to those with family or ministry commitments, we are offering the ATS in a concentrated, 7-week format.


During the teaching weeks, visiting authors and publishing experts will provide instruction in writing craft and the business of publishing. Afterwards, you will embark on writing your book. You can choose to remain at the Durban base for a five-week intensive writing period, or return home and commit to work on your book for ten hours per week for a four month period. Either way, the ATS staff will continue to track with and encourage you so that you can finish the book God has put on your heart.
