The Safrea Chronicle is an independent online media publication, with a subscriber-based newsletter, that was established in order to fill a gap left by the closure of so many newspapers and magazines. The content is created and/or curated by members of the Southern African Freelancers’ Association.
Freelancers are an eclectic bunch, which means that the content of the newsletter will be like Forrest Gump’s box of chocolates – you never know what you are going to get.
The newsletter and the website are intended to be a publication platform for Safreans; a shop window for their work; a testing ground for new ideas; a portal for the reader to find stories and ideas they might not find anywhere else; a mentoring project for newcomers; and a focus on more unusual and less-accessible media.
There are creators, there are columns, there are opinions, there is multi-media, and there will cover as broad a range of topics and subjects as possible.
We hope to entertain, inform, edify, educate, and amuse.
Safrea is a non-profit membership organisation that aims to promote the interests of freelance media and communications professionals in the published written, visual, information technology, broadcast and creative media spheres, and which aspires to be the freelance organisation of choice in these industries.
