Jeff Sagansky Harvardwood TV Writers Program - application closes March 4th! 


The deadline to submit for the Spring 2024 Jeff Sagansky Harvardwood TV Writers Program is Monday, March 4th at 11:59 PT


The Jeff Sagansky Harvardwood TV Writers Program uses peer review, guest speakers, and weekly workshops to foster a motivating and supportive environment for each participant’s writing. Participants will be placed in a genre-specific module (half-hour, hourlong, rewrite, etc.) where writers read and provide personalized feedback for each other, supervised by experienced Module Leaders. Throughout the semester, guest speakers, panels, and social events supplement the workshop experience and help build a collaborative and meaningful community out here in Hollyweird and beyond. In other words, “Come for the deadlines, stay for the friends.”


The 10-week program culminates in an educational “pitch panel” event where participants have the opportunity to pitch their HWP project to industry veterans, receive feedback on their concept, and practice the art of pitching.


 

Harvardwood Summer Internship Program (HSIP) 2024


We are pleased to launch the Harvardwood Summer Internship Program (HSIP) for 2024!

Job Description:

MSNBC is looking for a Graphics Production Assistant for Jose Diaz-Balart Reports.



Alumni Profile: Susan Lieu AB '07 (author, playwright, performer)

by Laura Frustaci

Susan Lieu AB '07 is a Vietnamese-American author, playwright, and performer who tells stories that refuse to be forgotten. A daughter of nail salon workers, she took her award-winning autobiographical solo show 140 LBS: HOW BEAUTY KILLED MY MOTHER on a ten-city national tour, with sold-out premieres and accolades from the Los Angeles Times, NPR, and American Theatre. Eight months pregnant, she premiered her sequel, OVER 140 LBS, at ACT Theatre. She is a proud alumna of Harvard College, Yale School of Management, Coro, Hedgebrook, and Vashon Artist Residency. She is also the cofounder of Socola Chocolatier, an artisanal chocolate company based in San Francisco. Susan lives with her husband and son in Seattle, where they enjoy mushroom hunting, croissants, and big family gatherings. THE MANICURIST'S DAUGHTER is her first book. Pre-order THE MANICURIST'S DAUGHTER here!


“I’ve always felt called to be a performer,” says Susan Lieu AB ‘07. And perform, she does. Her award-winning one-woman show 140 LBS: HOW BEAUTY KILLED MY MOTHER led to a sequel performance AND a book deal, but we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Let’s back up. While in high school, Susan describes herself as “the community service type,” so she didn’t find much time for artistic endeavors. And upon arriving at Harvard, she found herself feeling a bit intimidated by SAG-card-carrying classmates. “I never thought I could do it,” Susan confesses, “because I always actually felt too late.”


Then, after her very first time onstage at Harvard performing in THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES, she found her creative spark unleashed. “It was the first time I ever worked with a director. It was the first time I had ever really been formally on stage and it was thrilling.” Susan was hooked, but she didn’t immediately jump into the career. “The creative arts continued to follow me, but in non-traditional ways.” Post-grad, she traveled to Vietnam for a year to work with the sustainable cacao industry, later returning to San Francisco to build her family chocolate company, Socola Chocolatier, with her sister. When they launched their Sriracha chili truffle, Susan wrote and starred in a three-part telenovela chronicling the love affair of Chocolate Bar (which she played) and Sir Ra Cha Cha. 


After dipping her toe in the creative arts, she wanted more. “In 2011, I had a big worry that the Mayan calendar was true and 2012 would be the end of the world. I didn’t want to die with any regrets. I wanted to address my biggest fear head-on before I died– I wanted to know if I was actually funny,” she recalls. This line of thinking set Susan along her path to becoming a successful stand-up comedian, doing her first set at Brainwash in San Francisco, with an emcee who called all the female performers “Sugar Nasty”. Within a year, she was headlining at The Purple Onion and then subsequently performed at Caroline’s on Broadway. “I loved being on stage,” Susan smiles. “I was in my orbit there.” She focused on creating comedy and content that she wanted to see, inspired by her Asian American identity. 


But after a traumatizing experience with a heckler, she walked away and didn’t touch a microphone again for the next three years. After getting married and receiving pressure from her elders to start having kids, Susan reconsidered her decision to leave comedy. “How could I be a mother if I was actually such a coward in my own life?” She reflects. “I had this reckoning of ‘Should I have kids or not?’ And I set myself a two-year container to explore it, which led to a solo performance class, which led to me workshopping my one woman show.” So, in 2019, Susan premiered 140 LBS: HOW BEAUTY KILLED MY MOTHER, a solo show where she played 15 characters in 65 minutes.


It was a sold-out run in Seattle that led to a national tour during the second trimester of Susan’s first pregnancy. The five-city tour turned into a ten-city tour and ultimately, a literary agent saw the show and approached Susan about representation. “I am a multi-hyphenate storyteller, and I would love to play in many places,” Susan notes about her work and shifting mediums. “I'm a very spontaneous person. I like newness.” Susan then spent the first year of the pandemic working on her book proposal while nursing a newborn. In 2021, she got a book deal with Celadon/Macmillan, and her debut book is set to be released on March 12, 2024.


THE MANICURIST’S DAUGHTER tells the story of Susan searching to know her late mother who died from a botched plastic surgery. Susan was just 11 and her mother was 38 when she died. For the next two decades, Susan’s family refuses to talk about her mother or her death. On the brink of motherhood herself, Susan discovers information by tracking down the plastic surgeon’s family, reading thousands of pages of depositions, and enlisting the help of spirit channelers. Every time she learns something new, she puts it onstage in a one-woman show.


Crafting a family narrative that was honest, complex, and compelling when her family has never spoken about the past was the most challenging aspect of the project.  Susan had to excavate her family history in over 300 detail-ridden pages, rather than just a tight 65-minute performance. “I had this obligation and burden and pressure,” Susan explains. “Because it's not just my story–it's our family story and I needed to get it right. But I only had ten real memories of my mom. And so, to then create a whole world where you really see the complexity of my  mom and all the other family members when they haven’t ever let me in–that was both a tender and challenging thing to navigate. I had to get creative in probing for information–directly and indirectly.”


There was much more development that went into the minute details of the memoir, versus in the performance, where time was of the essence onstage. The challenge of molding all of this together into a readable story was exacerbated by the loneliness of writing during the pandemic with a one-year-old, Susan found. And without the immediate gratification of an audience reaction, maintaining discipline to write was another obstacle she faced. “The only motivation I really had is that I promised my mother and myself that I would publish this book when I was still 38 years old, the age she was when she passed,” she recalls. 


With that propelling her forward coupled by two trips to the emergency room due to stress, Susan’s memoir THE MANICURIST’S DAUGHTER got finished. It’s a touching and powerful telling of Susan’s mother’s life, death, and the wrought aftermath. And all the challenges in creation were worth the reward of the finished project. “I created something I’m proud of,” Susan proclaims. “It’s a family heirloom and artifact. And it’s a funny page-turner! It’s about intergenerational trauma and healing that’s digestible and approachable.” 


Now, she’s looking ahead towards her upcoming book tour, in 8 cities (including SF, LA and NYC!), a total of 19 events and counting. THE MANICURIST’S DAUGHTER is a “story around body, beauty, and death”, and from that story, Susan hopes her readers take away a crucial lesson: “Any emotions that you have around your pain are valid. We all have demons, and we're all doing our best. While others might not have the capacity to give us what we need to heal, that healing is possible and can be drawn from within.” 


In all her free time, Susan hosts a podcast called Model Minority Moms with two other Harvard Class of 2007 graduate moms, all of whom had children during the pandemic. “We talk about what it's like to be everything for everyone but yourself.” Susan says. “And how that impacts your career, your purpose, and your sanity.” 


When asked what her best piece of advice is for young artists, Susan says her top two things every artist should be doing are documenting their art and collecting data. “Have finished work. Invest in documentation. And get peoples’ email addresses if they’re interested in you.” She explains. “The path to becoming a working artist requires so much hustle. Create a sacred container to dream (and kick all those naysayers to the curb) and start experimenting with tiny actions–you’ll eventually go much farther than everyone else who don’t have the courage to dream.”

Remembering Angela Chao (AB '94 MBA '01)


Harvardwood is so deeply saddened by the unexpected loss of Angela Chao, an inspiring visionary in both business and social impact undertakings, and a dedicated patron of the arts. Throughout her lifetime full of notable accomplishments, commitments, and philanthropy, she shone her light on many worthy endeavors— and we were humbled to be grateful recipients of her generosity through her ongoing support for Harvardwood artists.  Below, we've collected statements from recipients in her honor.



The loss of such an inspiring, generous soul is one felt by the entire world. I am grateful to have had the honor of meeting Angela and to have been a recipient of her kindness. Just last year, Ava Salzman, Joseph Lee, and I were awarded the Ruth Mulan Chu Chao Harvardwood AAPI Artist Fellowship, to pursue projects such as graphic novels, films, TV series, and books. All our pieces are in some way transgenerational, connecting us to our AAPI backgrounds. Through the stories we tell, we hope to recognize the legacy of the loved ones who  came before us.  


Legacy is something that was of great importance to Angela, as she dedicated the fellowship to  her mother, Ruth Mulan Chu Chao. Like her mother, Angela was a generous philanthropist and  advocate for the arts and the AAPI community.  Through the Chao fellowship, Angela honored the memory of her mother. As her fellows, we hope to honor Angela by committing ourselves to the opportunities granted to us by her  generosity. Like Angela Chao, we aspire to champion the AAPI community and create work that facilitates understanding between different cultures.

Samantha Mari Woolf, Chao Fellow, 2023


It is an extremely rare and special thing to find a person who dedicates themselves completely and wholeheartedly into helping others become who they are. A person whose love for the world and the complexity, beauty, and stories within it is so great that it pours out of them, lifts others up around them and carries them forward. Angela Chao was one of those people. I was extremely fortunate and grateful to be one of the recipients of Angela’s inaugural AAPI Artist Fellowship, which she founded in honor of her mother Ruth, and it has been perhaps the most important support system that I’ve had this past year to help me become the artist I want to be. I owe this to Angela - not only her spirit of generosity and support in creating the fellowship, but her direct encouragement and care itself.


I am so thankful get to witness her radiant heart straight from the source. I can't fathom that she is no longer with us, and am utterly devastated by her loss, but she lives on in all the people she loved and encouraged into being. In all the people into which she poured her trust and belief. She has helped me, and many others, get back on track to be the artist that I want to be, and I will be forever indebted to her. The world would be a better place if we all could carry on her memory by continuing that legacy. Thank you so much, Angela.

— Ava Salzman, Chao Fellow, 2023


As a filmmaker, I was blessed and honored to be supported by Angela Chao through the Ruth Mulan Chu Chao AAPI fellowship she created. In the past year, her generosity enabled me to write screenplays, travel to research North Korean defectors, and complete another short film about the Asian American experience. But her impact did not stop there.


She encouraged me to look at my family as sources of inspiration, to champion diversity and new experiences, and to embrace the stories of my ancestors. She shared with me how important Asian cinema was to her while growing up, and how she wanted future generations to embrace their cultural heritage with pride and confidence. With those wishes in mind, I hope to continue making films that honor her desire for more heartfelt stories. I am humbled to express my sincere gratitude for her support and guidance. Angela inspired many, and it was my privilege to be just one affected by her legacy. 

Joseph Lee, Chao Fellow, 2023


As the beneficiary of the Angela Chao AAPI Artist Grant, I was able to enroll in the Harvardwood TV Writers Program at no cost, which allowed me the opportunity to receive peer and professional critique on my half-hour comedy sample. My workshop leader, Sam, was an invaluable resource who set aside personal time to help offer advice, not only on writing but also on working professionally as a writer and getting your foot in the door as support staff. The program also gave me the opportunity to practice pitching to real industry professionals and hear their experiences via panels, which is direct access that I otherwise wouldn’t have been able to get on my own. I am so appreciative of Angela Chao for her generosity and support of Asian-American writers.

Caroline Tsai, awardee, Chao Stipend 2021-2022


Receiving the Harvardwood AAPI Artist Grant from Mrs. Chao helped springboard my career into the entertainment industry. Thanks to Mrs. Chao’s generous grant, I served as a Creative Development Intern for the production company Eleventh Northwest during the summer of 2022. During this internship, I helped create pitch decks, performed script coverage, and shadowed writers in the creation of a scripted series. This experience helped me secure my first postgraduate job as an executive assistant to a world-renowned choreographer. Mrs. Chao’s patronage for the arts touched so many of my fellow AAPI classmates and her contributions and support will surely give rise to the next generation of AAPI storytellers.

Callia Chuang, awardee, Chao Stipend 2021-2022


As an Asian-American female writer, receiving the Angela Chao Harvardwood Writers Program grant has provided deep and meaningful support for me. As an AAPI writer who does not fit the Hollywood mold, this grant acknowledges my strong feminist and social justice screenwriting work, writing that is inextricably linked to my experiences as an Asian-American woman who grew up on three continents in six countries. I am so grateful for this generous grant, as it has given me a profound sense of validation, belonging, and excitement about the opportunity to contribute to the diversification of storytelling in entertainment.

Ashia Solei, awardee, Chao Stipend 2021-2022
