Have you heard the news? My class on freelance for publication bopped the editors at Atlanta INtown Paper over the head and we are taking over production of their July print issue! Bwhahahaha.
Actually, it was yet another awesome collaboration set up through SCAD Ivy Hall. Publisher Wendy Binns and Editor Collin Kelley wanted to change things up a bit, get a new point-of-view. We are so excited they’ve chosen us. Some great ideas are in the works for our themed issue, Rediscovering Atlanta. Tens of thousands of Atlantans read Atlanta INtown, so it’s a great opportunity for us emerging writers.
Here’s the gang with professor, Dr. Christopher Bundy, outside of the Atlanta INtown offices. Don’t we look sharp! In general, the issue is going to explore different aspects of our city from the perspective of 20-30somethings. Whether it’s profiling new businesses on the block or featuring the history of Atlanta’s favorites, we are bringing quite the range of stories to the table.
I’ll be profiling a very special bartender and will take a look at an organization dedicated to man’s best friend. I’m also working on a column featuring one of my favorite subjects, beer. Oh yes. These are my kind of people. We’ll also have some new media pieces on the website — I’ve seen some early footage — Travel Channel, watch out! It will be marvelous. Stay tuned!
