Bless the Child - interview with Hone Kouka and Mīria George

Miria George (b. 1980) is a New Zealand writer of Te Arawa, Ngati Awa, Rarotonga, Atiu and Kuki Airani descent who has written for radio and television. In November 2005, she won the Emerging Pacific Artist's Award at the Arts Pasifika Awards, organised by Creative New Zealand, and two Chapman Tripp Theatre Awards for her first play, Ohe Ake.


Miria holds a Masters in Creative Writing from Victoria University of Wellington's International Institute of Modern Letters and, with Hone Kouka, co-founder of Tawata Productions and Tawata Press.

In a review of her play Sunset Road, Ewen Coleman observed that it "weaves both reality and symbolism through the stories" but that it "initially comes across as languid and slow with little clarity in what is going on not helped by the unnatural delivery of the stilted dialogue".
