Teresa Weaver doesn’t have to worry about her precarious position at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution any longer. She’s got a new job at Atlanta magazine, where her monthly column will debut with the summer issue. She’ll also, according to the press release, “work with publishers on arranging book excerpts and other book-related features.”
Meanwhile, AJC arts editor Julia Wallace insists the institutional changes that drove Weaver to the magazine world aren’t as bad as everybody makes them sound. “We are adding some jobs, merging some, and dropping others,” Wallace told AJC readers, but “will there be a reduction in the number of reviews? That’s not the goal.” Wallace describes the paper’s approach as placing as much emphasis on reportage on the local arts scene as criticism of its works.
