My name is Dean McCoubrey, I am the Managing Editor of South Africa’s Journalism Hub, MediaWeb. We are a central resource for journalists who are looking for the latest journalism news, resources, tips and freelance work. My stories are published in IOL Travel (part of Independent Newspapers, largest newspaper group in South Africa), iafrica.com (lifestyle portal), Wildside (travel magazine) Indwe in-flight magazine, Premier (business class lounge magazine, and Slow magazine (business magazine, targeting business travelers and bank clients), Prestige magazine (high net-worth clients), and Bella (female interest.) I am also the Editor of luxury lifestyle publication, OneLife.
As an editor, I love writing, but my specific passion is on the fine detail in all things luxury, especially when it comes to travel. Affluent travelers like to know the finer details and backstory about a place, and it’s unearthing and translating this valuable information, woven into a good read, that truly motivates me.
