Mishka Shubaly first took to the stage as a public speaker at the tender age of seven (his mother still has that trophy somewhere). He has spoken about writing, recovery, and his unorthodox path to success as a writer and musician at the National Arts Club and Union Hall in New York, and at high schools around the country. His narrative about surviving a shipwreck for The Moth has been broadcast around the country on NPR. When not on the road, he teaches writing at the Yale Writers' Conference.
Bestselling author, Cult Songwriter, Storyteller, Smartass
