Amid a devastating surge of Covid infections, the South African National Editors Forum (SANEF) has launched a guide, developed with a focus on the needs of community media. The guide produced in close partnership with fraycollege and Internews, draws on experiences of journalists infected and affected by the pandemic.
fraycollege hosted a webinar on the power of telling Africa’s stories. The webinar looked at best practices, the latest trends, the role of multi-media and social platforms in modern story telling. Using real case studies we looked at how we tell Africa’s stories, how audiences consume stories and how to give power to your stories.
