I’m M.D. Pitman, a creative writer and award-winning journalist. For the past two decades I’ve covered news around Southwest Ohio, and for the past several years I’ve been working to hone my skills as a creative fiction writer. I just as with anything, I first started with smaller pieces of work and I’m now attempting to tackle a longer format piece.
My creative writing is vastly different than my journalism. I’ve spent a career of reporting facts and truths, but now the voices in my head get a chance to tell their stories — but they have to take their turn.
I hope you enjoy my journey and hopefully soon you’ll see more products populate this website. Until then, enjoy some of my creative writing endeavors and I short stories in five anthologies, “Baby Shoes: 100 Stories by 100 Authors” and three “Ironology” anthologies — 2014, 2015 and 2016, and CEA’s “Greatest Anthology Written.”
Also on this website will feature some of my photography. I’ve developed my photography skills over the past few years with the newspaper, and hope you enjoy what I’ve produced.
