Robert A.B. Sawyer was born in Brooklyn, brought up in Los Angeles, came of age in Santa Cruz, and entered the real world in New York City. There he spent 30 years creating advertising for some of the world's largest brands, as well as some you'd need a seance to find. His book, Kiss & Sell, Writing for Advertising, originally published in September 2004, by AVA Publishing, was reissued in 2006, in English and Spanish and is used in universities and businesses around the world.
Sawyer was a winner of the 2003 Discovery/The Nation Poetry Competition, and has had poems in Margie: The Journal of American Poetry, The Nation and Jazz 2. His poem, "How I Know She's Coming Home," was selected by Natasha Trethewey for Meridian Best New Poets 2007, and "Hong Kong Harbor 1984" became the lyrics to a choral piece composed by Philip White, which premiered in Los Angeles, by Angel City Chorale, June 2, 2012. (Renamed "On This Side of the Window," the poem/music was published by Santa Barbara Music Publishing, Inc.) He has published a short story in Adbuster, a critical article in Afterimage, The Journal of Media Arts and Cultural Criticism, and an Op-Ed piece in The New York Times.
