I have worked as a ghostwriter, scriptwriter, creative writer and documentary film maker. As a ghostwriter, I worked closely with a young woman from a different langauge, cultural and racial group to produce a book that was shorlisted for a prestigious award. My work a a scritpwriter began in the 1980s, when I produced two 13-episode drama series, one of which was screened annually by the South African Broadcasting Corportion for more than ten years and across political dispensations! As a documentary filmmaker I have been most intersted in women's stories, especially women who are marginalised and excluded within different religious contexts. I have develolped new writing skills through working on my blog, Rift Valley Reflections (http://melodyemmettsbezvalley.blogspot.com). This is voluntary work but I would love some sponsorship to devote more attention to it.
