Mimi Ayers, born in Chicago, raised in St. Petersburg, Florida, gypsied across the country and now calls New Orleans “home.” She is an MFA Playwriting graduate of the University of New Orleans Creative Writing Workshop (CWW). Mimi writes stories based on family, history and fantasy. Her plays are as eclectic as her stories and poems. Two new plays written and workshopped with the CWW have had staged readings in New Orleans: "Man 2 Man" at the Valiant Theatre and "Circus Tails" at the Always Lounge and The Theatre at St. Claude. "Man 2 Man" was a semifinalist at the 2019 Austin Film Festival and Writers Conference. One of Mimi's short plays "Man Down" can be seen streaming as part of the 2020 Columbus Black Theatre Festival. Mimi’s film script “Eulalie Mandeville, F.W.C.” was published in 2021 in The ARTemis Arts Wisdom Anthology , a collection of plays and screenplays written by women over 50.
