West Of Free Press is a family-owned monthly publication serving the area of Charleston colloquially-known as West Ashley (29407 and 29414). As revitalization efforts continue to sweep across the region, West Ashley’s community newspaper has also undergone a revitalization.
West Ashley has changed a lot since our first issue hit the racks in February 2005. The media landscape has also changed dramatically in that time, especially in the world of print media. Like the community we serve, we adapted. We evolved. In March of 2018 we transformed from a small weekly newspaper to a monthly newsmagazine. Our publication is now bigger and better. It’s printed on nicer paper and advertisers now get more bang for their buck.
For readers, we now offer more insightful and thoughtful articles about what is impacting our part of town. As a monthly publication, we can take a more in-depth look at not only news issues, but also the arts and dining happenings. We will continue to work hard to bring you a better publication. Because West Ashley deserves better.
