SAFE Holidays

The Society of Associated Freelance Editors today released its 2010 holiday schedule.

In a press release, SAFE president Zsolt Vahlqist stated in part: "These special days are not holidays in the traditional sense, that is, days off. Nevertheless, we are encouraging all of our members to celebrate them in their own special ways for what they are—the work-at-home freelancers' substitution for the variety of occasions celebrated throughout the year by their office-bound counterparts."
