Excerpt from Anna Mullins' Letter from the Editor: What’s in a name, anyway? It turns out, a lot. Perhaps because it’s one of the very first steps in creation, imparting a title carries quite a bit of weight. Tasked with helping to create a new online magazine in Memphis, I wanted a name that would feel entirely local without being recycled, aspirational without being hackneyed. I began soliciting ideas from friends, coworkers, strangers on the street. The bar seemed to be set out of reach until the idea of “High Ground” appeared in my inbox. High Ground is not just our name; it’s our mission statement. We are bringing you alternative news on moving the city forward, emerging solutions to our urban problems, and the bright spots of creativity and development. We’re taking the higher ground in journalism and creating new narratives that document the transformation and growth on the Bluff. And we can tell you, there’s a better view from the top.
