Fwd: JULY features Michael Bunnell for 4th Friday Readings


Featured Writer Michael Bunnell is a pro at adapting the skills of one genre to another. In his varied career, he has written and published essays, poems, articles, broadcast programs, song lyrics and much more. He not only excels as a working writer, but his Master of Arts degree has served him well as a teacher of writing at Skagit Valley College, Chapman University, public schools and writing workshops.

Bunnell calls his latest work, The Friendly Little War of Lyman Cutler, a 'musical comedy without the music." When not writing, he is an amateur musician with a fondness for organic gardens, sailing, and classic cars.
