Also in August, "I Remember When..." a Memoir Short Story Workshop will be held. To capture the stories from Dorchester County residents, DCA is pleased to support this three-week workshop to help write a personal short story. Participants can be any age, with any story and if it takes place in Dorchester County even better! These short memoir stories will be shared in a reading in the oral/storytelling tradition at DCA in a program in the fall. They will be recorded along with a photo portrait done of each of the participants. Support will be given to guide participants through the writing and editing process.

The Vienna session will be Vienna Town Hall; Tuesdays, Aug. 16, 23 and 30, from 1-3 p.m. The second session will be held at Church Creek Firehouse; Thursdays, Aug. 11, 18 and 25, from 3-5 p.m. Free and open to the public.

Dorchester Center for the Arts is dedicated to enriching Maryland’s Eastern Shore community through high quality, engaging programming in the visual, literary and performing arts. For additional program information and/or registration, visit DCA online at dorchesterarts.org or stop by 321 High Street in Cambridge. Open Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Thursday, noon-8 p.m. Programs at DCA are supported by the Maryland State Arts Council. For the latest, find DCA on Facebook.
