Who We Are


We apologize  for our appearance. And typos too! 

We are currently redoing our website to give you more scope in our drop down menu bars and to let you have the opportunity to join us on a regular basis.  The designer is working on finishing it by the end of August, we hope. 


According to the dictionary, a group of mice is called a “mischief” of mice. Over a five year period, what a wondrous group of people we’ve met and are still meeting.

We have grown in scope and while each of our contributors and original regulars have moved forward, and left lasting creative work, it has left MouseMuse the freedom to assemble programs without being “married” to any one particular talent, storyteller, writer, musician, and it has helps us remain free to pursue the best for each program.

Ideation Mouse

The original mouse who loves the word “ideation” because it’s a corporate word used for giving leadership positions to people who lead groups into brainstorming. Brainstorming mouse would be the correct word for Ina.

Ina is still having visions even if it’s called “delusions.” We have managed to produce staged readings of play in 2014, to create original content and stage it several times in 2014. It looks like 2015 is going to be an even broader definition as we move into radio plays both original and from long lost soap operas.

Ina ChadwickIna Chadwick’s work has appeared in literary journals, including The Paris Review and The Antioch Review. She holds several first place awards in editing from the New England Press Association, along with first place awards for writing and design in publications.

From 1983 to 1995 she managed chaotic newsrooms, scary newspapers and slick 300 page trade magazines. She has been lauded by the Web Marketer’s Association for excellence in creative direction and copywriting for legal websites, a distinction that still perplexes her.
