Michael Gravel’s passions are poetry and web design. He believes that art, design, and poetry strive for the same ideal: to say the most with the least. He has penned two chapbooks: The Fast Places (2008) and Corduroy Forecast (2010). He runs a small web communication consultancy called MG Creative where he exercises his passion for simplicity and order. He was one of the founding founders – and the front man – of the Raving Poets, an open mic poetry series that concluded its 10 year run in 2010.
