Cultural Conversations: Works in Progress - Writers in the Making

by Susan Russell

Cultural Conversations is a festival devoted to reaching out to the world by reaching inside ourselves, and the plays in this journal are glimpses into how a playwright is trying to make you “look” inside your culture. These plays, like our culture, are works in progress, and you are being invited into a living effort. How do these writers try to break through the chatter in your mind and at your finger tips? How do these writers make you see something without it being there? And what have these writers chosen to talk to you about? To celebrate our fifth season, WPWM offers you six different writers using six different strategies, and these playwrights risk everything in every word: STICK by Irma Mayorga and Vicki Grise, KILLADELPHIA by Sean Christopher Lewis, EAT LIKE A BIRD by Laura Edmondson, AMERICAN TABOO by Steve Broadnax, PHYLLIS by Sarah Kosar, and THE TOYMAKER’S WAR, by Jennifer Fawcett.

Cultural Conversations: Works in Progress - Writers in the Making

Because I Said So!

by Dr Neal Hemmelstein PhD

Teenagers appear to be another species. And they show up with no manual (either "operating" or "service"). "Because I Said So!" provides that missing document. This is not a "How-to" book as much as a guide to developing your family's own "how-to's." Each family has its own set of values, though we often share values that others hold. I have no interest in telling you what those values should be. I wish to share with you some of the guidelines I have discovered, observed, stumbled across, and learned the hard way during my work as a camp counselor, kindergarten teacher, teacher of adolescents in a psychiatric hospital, psychologist in a residential facility for children with behavioral, emotional, and mental health problems, school psychologist, and private practice psychologist working with children, teenagers, and families.

"What's the Big Idea?!" provides teenagers with similar guidelines, not to parent, but to live and improve their self care. I define "Self-Care" as: having a good time; gaining understanding on how the way you feel affects the way you act; understanding how the way you feel and act affects others; understanding how the way others feel and act affects you; and getting better at identifying and sharing how you feel with those who care so much about you.
