SCAD INtown Takeover TeamBy Collin Kelley

We have something very special coming up for our July issue of Atlanta INtown. We’ve partnered with Chris Bundy’s spring freelance writing class at the Savannah College of Art & Design for what we’re calling the INtown Takeover.

For the last two months, publisher Wendy Binns and I have been meeting with the students, who are eager, curious and full of fantastic ideas. When they pitched their stories to us in April, we were thrilled by how quickly they grasped INtown’s mission and we’re excited to have these new, fresh voices in our pages. The students have also given us plenty of feedback and ideas on how we can improve and we have been listening.

When the July issue hits stands and mailboxes, the theme will be “Rediscovering Atlanta,” and the Takeover Team will have created all the articles, photos and look of the paper. You can follow the SCAD team on Twitter by clicking on Lists at @ATLINtownPaper and finding the link to all the team members’ accounts.
