Do you love cars? How about writing? Are you keen to become a motoring journalist, but don’t know where to start? After receiving hundreds of e-mails from aspiring motoring journalists during the course of my own career, I decided to develop an Introductory Lecture (one day) on Motoring Journalism early in 2012. Since then nearly 50 people have attended these lectures in Johannesburg and Cape Town. This site will serve as a notice board for upcoming lectures and any new, related developments.
My lectures are aimed at providing information to enable those interested in the career, but undecided, to make informed decisions. It is also worth keeping in mind that it is relatively simple to start a blog and to start writing about cars. Technically, you could then call yourself a motoring journalist. My lectures, however, are aimed at those who want more than that, to establish themselves as respected professionals (in the eyes of readers and the automotive industry) and to improve the standard of motoring journalism in this country.
