“I have no grand dreams of my writing taking me anywhere except deeper into my own imagination and ideas about the world.”
— Andrew Mitin
A member of the Writers’ League since May 2020, Andrew lives in Spring, Texas.
Scribe: In what genre(s) do you write?
Andrew Mitin: I write fiction, screenplays and poetry.
Scribe: What author would you most like to have a drink with, and what’s the first question you would ask them?
AM: If I could ask any writer about the love and sorrows of these endeavors I’d have a cigar with Kierkegaard while ambling around Copenhagen.
Scribe: If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book would you want to have with you to keep you sane?
AM: If I were stranded on an island (or in my apartment, as the last few months have seen) I would need the Bible and Plato’s Republic to keep me sane.
Scribe: Where do you see your writing taking you (or you taking it) in the future?
AM: I have no grand dreams of my writing taking me anywhere except deeper into my own imagination and ideas about the world.
Scribe: Here at the Writers’ League, we love sharing book recommendations. What’s one Texas-related book that has come out within the past year that you couldn’t put down?
AM: I’ve only recently moved to Texas so I can’t pretend to know about the books it has inspired.
Scribe: Is there anything else about you that you would like to share with the world? An opportunity for blatant self-promotion!
AM: I look forward to meeting all of you and wish you continued success upon the blank page. Feel free to check out andrewmitin.com to see what I’ve been up to. Cheers!
Thank you, Andrew!
