Remember back to that time of awkward firsts— first love, first rejection, first total freak out — and then imagine sharing your most embarrassing teenage writings and art in front of total strangers.
In an upcoming segment of my NEW weekly radio show, “Conversations with Wendy,” I’ll have a chat with the filmmakers of Mortified – “a genuinely entertaining, but also subversively profound and surprisingly moving documentary” that reveals what growing up says about all of us.
How embarrassed would you be to reveal, years later, to an audience what you wrote to yourself in your journal? My hope is you’ll embrace the moment and share the pain, laughter, and ultimate healing of your teenage self on the air with me!
Break into your diary and see if you’d feel brave reading an entry or two. We don’t even have to use your name (but we will if you like!)
Be MORTIFIED with me! I promise to share my heart-wrenching (emo) poetry – you might laugh so hard you’ll cry – Saturday, May 10th, in the 8 o’clock hour on Newsradio 1070 WINA. If you have a journal or diary entry to read on the air, give me a call! (434) 207-6300 or email WEdwards@CharlottesvilleRadioGroup.com & put “Mortified” in the subject. Only 4-5 entries will be aired. All calls and emails will be returned.
Have a friend who still has his or her teen journals? Pass this on!
