"the gruff and rough-voiced Shubaly is a chronicler of mankind's darkest impulses and failures, a guy with a ticket to hell and back" - Time Out New York
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.
