About Mark Higgins
HIGGINS, MARK is the Continuous News Editor at The Seattle Times, a relatively new job title that still concerns his wife and kids. Higgins runs the Metro Desk, helping shape the daily coverage for seattletimes.com and the paper. A veteran journalist, Higgins previously worked as Deputy Metro Editor, editing many projects, including the book “Natural Wonders;” and the award-winning narrative, “What’s Best for Baby M?” The story followed a homeless couple's two-year quest to try to win back their infant daughter from state custody. Earlier editing projects included an eight-part narrative on the federal government’s botched prosecution of suspected spy, Muslim Army Capt. James Yee, and a 2004, five-part series on presidential politics and the environment. Prior to the Times, Higgins worked as an editor and reporter at The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Tacoma News Tribune, The Orange County Register, and at several small dailies and weeklies. Higgins grew up near Seattle and graduated from Western Washington University with a degree in journalism and what would become his first box of photographs and must-save clips, all of which are stored beneath the basement stairs of his 100-year-old house near Green Lake.
