About Durban Diva



Aka Candice Botha, I am a fulltime freelance writer who day dreams of a life less ordinary.  I have my own copywriting, editing and proofreading business as well as contributing features to local and national publications both in print and online. I grew up in Durbs-by-the-sea then escaped to Cape Town and Ireland for a few years before coming home. My time away has made me acutely aware of Durban’s uniqueness (that is deliberately ambiguous) and I have recently felt compelled to share my musings and mitherings about my home town with the world. I do hope that you will pop in regularly for a taste of Durban. I intend to keep you updated on interesting events so if you know of anything or are hosting something exciting, please get in touch so that I can post about it.
