Gritty Memphis News

Posted on Tue, Jun 26, 2007 at 4:00 AM

Memphis has a new biweekly online magazine. Actually: Memphis has its first and to our knowledge only biweekly online magazine. It's called CultureGrits.com, and it promises a "mouthful of Memphis" with each issue.

The first issue has a personal essay by a home-invasion victim from Humes Heights, a spotlight on Memphis Teen Volunteers, the back story of Memphis Farmers Market, and the introduction to a multipart story on the "Evolution of Memphis Soul." Future issues will follow suit, with essays, nonprofit profiles, and the stories behind the story of successful businesses and individuals.

The site is founded and edited by Mary K. Levie, a former writer for the University of Memphis' Daily Helmsman (ain't Google grand?). CultureGrits.com says they're hoping to add sections on local fiction and photography.
