Michael Schwartz is an artist of the page, stage, and screen, and is also a college professor. Among the awards he's won for his writing, was the Interpreting Brooklyn grant from the Brooklyn Historical Society, for his poems, short stories, monologues, and songs. One of his poems will be published in the upcoming Spiny Babbler, an anthology book of New York poets. Schwartz has been performing his work on a continuing tour throughout the land often on the sand at the edge of the sea.
