A year or two ago I helped screen participants for the project described below - if you are interested in sharing a good laugh at your teenage dreams of being a highly regarded writer/poet/songwriter/lover, please read the following message from a nice gal named Heather Houston... -KiKi
As you may know, I produce the DC chapter of a national art project called *
Mortified* (*www.getmortified.com*). Hailed a "cultural phenomenon" by
Newsweek, and celebrated by the likes of This American Life, The Washington
Post, The Onion AV Club, and Entertainment Weekly, *Mortified* is a comic
excavation of the strange and extraordinary things we created as kids. Witness
adults sharing their own adolescent journals, letters, poems, lyrics, home
movies, stories and more!
Mortified DC is gearing up for future shows and looking for new content.
I've enclosed information about the project and details on how to submit.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or are interested
in participating. Also please help us get the word out by forwarding this
information to family and friends located in the DC area.
Thanks again for your support. We look forward to hearing from you!
Producer, Mortified DC
*Dear Angsty People in Washington DC,*
- Did you write lame-ass love letters as a kid?
- Did you write angsty lyrics as a teenager?
- Did you spend high school writing melodramatic journals?
So did the people behind *Mortified*. And they want you to join them. Dust
off that diary! Whip out that Trapper Keeper! Yep, *Mortified DC *is
actively looking for new readers to join the fun. If you or someone you
know would like to read aloud utterly embarrassing childhood relics in front
of total strangers ... we'd LOVE to hear from you. Open to anyone from
politicians to accountants. Please note you must be 21+.
*WHAT: MORTIFIED - WASHINGTON DC AREA*
Hailed a "cultural phenomenon" by Newsweek, *Mortified* is a comic
excavation of the strange and extraordinary things we created as kids. Part
group therapy, part storytelling hilarity, and completely cringe-worthy, *
Mortified* inspires grown adults to share their own adolescent journals,
letters, poems, lyrics, home movies and stories and more!
*Real Stories. Real People. Share the Shame. Get Mortified!*
