The SAFREAN: September 2017

Bringing you the latest news in South African freelancing



Dear Safreans,

We are so grateful to everyone for contributing their time and energy for the betterment of this organisation's future. With your help, we've established new regional committees across the country as well as a strong national social media team. We're looking forward to this exciting next chapter full of creative energy. To all of the 41 members who have put their hands up to volunteer (nearly 1 in 10 SAFREA members), we say a big THANK YOU!

Thanks also to Eric Miller and Kim Stevens for our stunning newsletter photos this month. If you are a photographer and want to add your work to our growing SAFREA image library, please get in touch with our social media manager, Laura Dubber. To find out more about each freelancer, just click on their photo. 

Here's to a fulfilling September!


“The freelance market, especially in SA, is growing with many highly skilled and incredibly experienced professionals, so it's getting more competitive – in a good way. Freelance is no longer seen as someone in a bikini with a laptop, sitting under a palm tree. It’s being respected as a career that people work hard to grow and maintain through quality work and professional attitudes," says SAFREA's former chair, Laura Rawden, in a recent interview with BizCommunity.
