What is your favorite writing saying?

"if you show a gun in the first scene, it should be fired by the last scene." I use this quote often in a class I teach at Mighty Writers, a comic book learning non-profit in South Philly, to show kids the importance of world building and introducing things they hope to use later in stories.

What is your favorite book on writing?

"Stephen King: On Writing" Great look at the medium

What do you write?

Newspapers - crime and politics mostly, but all kinds of features, editorials and miscellaneous stuff for the Star and Northeast Times papers in Philly. On my own, I write short science fiction stories and comic book scripts.

What do you read?

Comics, newspapers, there are words on paper, my eyes will peruse them

Tell me something else about yourself, please?

I think I'm a pretty cool guy.


Hayden Mitman Managing Editor Star newspapers. That's what my business card says. Otherwise, I'm hardworking, enamored with the city of Philadelphia and always interested in becoming a better writer, editor and reporter.
