What could be better than a night of short stories in a space full of art in a town full of wine? Answer: nothing! Dime Stories are 3-minute open readings before a live audience. All are welcome, so bring your most riveting, your funniest, or most heart-wrenching prose or just a listening ear. Dime Stories, International is the national radio and podcast series that inspired 3-minute fiction on NPR. Join the newest chapter in beautiful wine country, Temecula and become a part of the Dime Stories network! The audience chooses the the top three stories, which are recorded and broadcast on Dime Stories website. You can read fiction or creative nonfiction, even a novel excerpt with a slapdash ending. The three-minute rule is enforced.

$5.00 donation at the door is very much appreciated.
