Literary Arts Program
The Prince George's County chapter is actively working to establish new partnerships with various organizations that support the literary arts.
The Prince George's County chapter supported the DC Improv by purchasing tickets and attending performances of our youngest and neophyte member, Diana Veiga, who was one of 8 local writers invited to share her talent as a writer and storyteller by orating her original true story about having her car stolen while planning a camping trip for the Prince George's County Girl Scouts. Diana cleverly shared her entertaining accounts of how she coped with the situation during her quest to recover the vehicle.
The Story District has showcased storytelling talent in the Washington, DC area for 20 years. "Up Shit Creek..." is among their monthly storytelling series of true stories told live, and features a mixture of first-time and regular storytellers who entertain audiences with unpredictable, hilarious, and poignant turns that their lives have taken in the night's theme.
In December 2018, Diana was named one of the DC Improv's top 8 story tellers of the year. This honor resulted in her being asked to perform at the Lincoln Theatre on January 19, 2019.
On February 12, Diana took the stage once again as part of Story District’s “Worst Date Ever Contest” at the Black Cat, in Washington, DC.
