Event Description

Love to write? Of course you do. Like to perform? That’s a rhetorical question. Want to share your stories with other writers? Why am I even asking? Dime Stories are 3-minutes stories (prose, not poetry) read by the author. They’re funny. They’re heart-rending. Fictional or factual, they’re always true.


Bring your Dime Story to read to a live audience at any of our open mics. Beware: Three-minute rule (that’s about 500 words) is strictly enforced. Please arrive by 6:30 PM to get a seat and sign up. Readings start at 7 PM. See you there!
