articles & reviews
Michael Narkunski is a Los Angeles-based New Yorker. He crafts personal essays that deal with his homosexuality, relationships, mental health issues, growing up in the forgotten borough of Staten Island, and the occasional game show disaster. He also writes plays and teleplays, often still about these things.
His essays have appeared in Out, Narratively, Hippocampus Magazine, Full Grown People, and two LGBT anthologies. His plays have had readings and performances presented by Dixon Place, Snorks & Pins, and Left Hip. He holds a BFA from NYU Tisch and an MFA from Stony Brook University.
He still takes the bus to the ferry to the subway every day in his mind.
