Meet the Media: Atlanta INtown

– By Sarah Funderburk

We sat down with Atlanta INtown Owner and Publisher Wendy Binns and Editor Collin Kelley in their offices on Krog Street to learn more about this intown community newspaper.

Binns has been with Atlanta Intown since she graduated from the University of Virginia. She began her newspaper career as an account executive. An Atlanta native, Kelley is an award-winning novelist, poet and playwright whose most recent novel “Remain in Light” has been nominated for the Townsend Prize for Fiction.

As we were interviewing Binns and Kelley, we noticed we didn’t see anyone else around the office. These two basically make up the team, along with a few sales people and a graphic designer.

As for editorial needs, Kelley says, “We’re always looking for community events, fundraisers for our calendars as well as stories on Intown residents giving back to the community in unique ways.”

Incidentally, Wendy has courageously battled cancer the past few months, updating readers in her monthly column about her progress. She underwent her last chemotherapy treatment just last week and reports she is feeling much better.
