Company: Ja. Magazine
Ja. Magazine is an award-winning publication that occupies a disruptive place in South Africa’s online literary and creative arts publishing scene. The magazine publishes mainly first time authors, poets, photographers and visual artists, and focuses on working between the gaps in South Africa’s failing media houses and its literary and arts publications. Ja. Magazine operates from a digital space but is rendered tangible through their accessible modes of publishing, such as printed zines, collaborations with street artists and more.
Ja. Magazine coeditors and founders Youlendree Appasamy, Dave Mann and Niamh Walsh-Vorster will look at Ja. as a model of guerrilla publishing and about its accessible dissemination of new written and visual work through public art and DIY workshops. Appasamy and Mann are both Joburg-based freelance writers and journalists who have been published in Sunday Times, Mail & Guardian, Business Day, City Press and more. Walsh-Vorster is a Durban-based freelance photographer who has worked with KZNSA gallery and been published in Mail & Guardian, Mercury, Witness and ArtThrob.
