Thanks for coming
Welcome to Peter Fray and Partners.
This site is about two things: me and you.
I assume you have some interest in me; let me assure you, I am interested in you too.
I may not know what form that interest will take but read on here — and the rest of the site — and I’m pretty sure we will find common ground.
Most of what I do is fuelled by three things:
1. Re-defining journalism. Journalists play many roles. Few, if any, of those roles are exclusive to journalism and virtually all are changing. Being paid to find, tell and edit stories is a privilege, not a right. As individual and an industry we need to be open to the way our roles can and will change.
2. Re-defining me. I had a great run at Fairfax. Not quite copy kid to CEO, but fairly close: rural reporter to editor-in-chief/publisher. I will be forever grateful for the experiences, but I can’t let them define me. I spent many years telling stories in print, but again they don’t define me. I spent several years in senior editorial and management positions, but again, they don’t define me. As with the industry, I will be made and remade every day. If nothing else is fixed, how can I?
3. Working out how to fund 1 and 2 above.
So, if you have any ideas about 1, 2 or 3 feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
