Creative Atlanta-area teens will get a unique opportunity to learn about writing, interactive media and storytelling from experienced instructors through VOX Media Café, a summer program hosted by VOX Teen Communications, which publishes the only Atlanta newspaper created by teens for teens.

Teens may sign up for any number of four, one-week courses at the VOX newsroom in Peachtree Center in downtown Atlanta.  Instructors such as Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Natasha Trethewey and Atlanta magazine editor Rebecca Burns will teach courses focusing on creative nonfiction, photojournalism, videography and multimedia storytelling.

Classes, which cost $350, are limited to 12 students each week but kids can enroll for more than one week.  Turner Broadcasting is offering financial aid.  Deadline for applications (available here) is May 15.
