Chay Jones

Chay Jones began her creative journey writing drama and science fiction novels for young adults. She was mentored by screenwriters at The University of Pennsylvania and went on to complete her MFA in Screenwriting for Film & Television from Boston University’s School of Communications. She became immersed with visuals and creating a visual story, taking up videography and producing post-grad. Her thriller television pilot, Kane, placed in the international Final Draft Big Break Contest just as she moved into the world of higher education. She was an adjunct professor of Script for Film at Emerson College and has also taught film courses at Lesley University and Boston University. Chay is now in the midst of writing a dystopian sci-fi post-grad novel adapted from an original television pilot script she wrote post-grad; in her writing, she loves to explore themes of time-space, the multiverse, ancestral ties, and what it truly means to be human or experience love. Chay is enjoying exploring her community in Ocean View with her son, daughter, husband and two orange kitties.
