High Ground News launches in Memphis

High Ground News, a new weekly digital magazine and website covering Memphis-area people, places and happenings, has launched, with a team led by Anna Mullins, the venture’s managing editor who’s also executive director of the Cotton Museum.

A small team of writers has been assembled to help the magazine pursue a wide mix of content. In a welcome note posted to the site March 12, Mullins wrote that High Ground News will do everything from covering corporate growth to small neighborhood movements.

Areas of focus include “economic and neighborhood development, healthy communities, entrepreneurship, non-profits, sustainability, leadership, technology and innovation.” Signing up for the venture’s newsletter will mean delivery of a fresh batch of stories by email every Wednesday, in addition to daily updates and news posted to the High Ground News website.
