I have been exceptionally fortunate in the opportunities to develop this blog: Oklahoma Arts: Scene & Hurd. Through this avenue, I have endeavored to give my readers the information they need to understand the value of the art that I criticize. My purpose is never to be kind but to be accurate. My ideal is that the public attend and appreciate the events that I review so that they may decide for themselves. I have been fortunate in that I have had assistance in this monumental task. There is so much talent in Oklahoma that it is virtually impossible to cover all the choices Oklahomans have. I would like to thank those who have assisted me in the past, present and (hopefully) future. Victoria Stahl has written for Oklahoma Arts: Scene & Hurd and it is hoped that she will have time to contribute again. Keely Womack has been invaluable in covering many productions particularly for Reduxion theatre and I appreciate her contributions mightily. Thanks also to Kim Mahoney for assisting with the Pollard and Doug Carlton whose work we expect to see in the future. There are several other people I am currently cultivating whose work will be included.
One of the most valuable contributors is Anna Holloway. She is the author of the article on dramaturgy which gives us a much greater understanding of what a dramaturgist does and how valuable the position is for a production. Anna has consented to accept the post of blog editor. That means more writers can contribute with the knowledge that their work will be proofed by an expert which is very comforting and helpful to all of us as no writer can easily examine their articles for mistakes. Anna has made many excellent contributions to Oklahoma Arts: Scene & Hurd and her work is appreciated by all readers. Thank you.
Anyone who would like to contribute an article, please feel free to contact me directly at email@example.com and include a phone number so that I can have a dialogue with you. I welcome contributions from this great community of artists that graces central Oklahoma. Thank you.
