The Columnist is an independently owned, online only newspaper. The publication was founded in spring 2017 by passionate, traditionally trained journalism graduates who aim to bring traditional news to a digital landscape.
Our goal is to amplify voices from places that are otherwise drowned out or ignored. We want to accomplish this by acting ethically, both journalistically and socially. We want to highlight the people, places and things that make all those smaller off the gird places great while also recognizing that there’s always more beneath the surface. Following important leads, asking hard questions and researching our facts extensively are our foremost priorities.
