Being a Good Host: Inviting the Creative Spirit In and Feeding It Well

Have you ever set aside time to write and then could not focus or get into your play? Making an appointment with the creative spirit is not like scheduling a teeth cleaning or going to a movie. What if we prepare our minds for this Inspiring Guest just as we would prepare a five-course meal or organize a house-warming party or set up a double date?

Neglecting to prepare your mental space for creative work is like inviting a friend over for lunch and then serving cold coffee and saltines…and then wondering why she makes excuses and doesn’t swing by as often.

In this workshop, we will explore ways to host the creative impulse through various stages of the writing process.

Mia Chung is the author of You for Me for You, Exquisite Corpse, Page Not Found, an adaptation of The Orphan of Zhao, and We Spend Our Lives. In Fall 2012, the world premiere of You for Me for You will be produced by Woolly Mammoth Theatre, in association with Ma-Yi Theatre Company and supported by an NEA grant.

Honors include a Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA) 2012 Playwriting Fellowship, a TCG 2011 Global Connections grant, 2011 Jane Chambers Award (Honorable Mention), and a Millay Colony residency. She is a member of New Dramatists, a fellow of the Playwrights Realm, a member of the Ma-Yi Writers Lab, and was a member of the inaugural Civilians’ R&D Group. Her work has been developed by Ma-Yi Theater Company, Magic Theatre, Bay Area Playwrights Festival, Mu Performing Arts, and Brandeis Theater Company. She received a Sloan commission and a Creative Arts Council grant. She attended Yale; the University of Dublin, Trinity College; and Brown.
