Hayden Donnell's Webworm Columns
I've put them all in one place, because I think they're really good
I love it when Hayden writes here. He went to journalism school with me, and it annoys me how good a writer he is.
Hayden helped me on a lot of the Arise Church stuff — I literally could not have done that without him.
But Hayden also writes a lot of more ‘whimsical’ stuff here. Darkly whimsical.
This is stuff I send out to paying subscribers — as a “thank you” for supporting what I do here. Paradoxically and wonderfully, paying subscribers mean I can always keep the important, public interest journalism I do completely free.
With that in mind, I wanted to gather all his work in one place, so this is the page for it: webworm.co/p/hayden.

As Webworm gets bigger (there are hundreds and hundreds of pieces here now), I want to make it easier for you to find old stuff from the archives. This is part of that.
So if you go to the main Webworm page — Webworm.co — you will find these little links over on the right to help.
You can see I’ve just added this page in for Hayden:
The App is another really good way to navigate the Webworm archives, and keep up with posts if you’re a heavy phone user.
You’ll always get my stuff via email first, but the App can be a nice way to read it.
Okay. Talk soon,
