Dime Stories — 3-Minute Prose

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.


$5.00 donation at the door is very much appreciated.

    I'm really sorry I ended up having to miss that. My niece had her graduation party that night. I look forward to next time. It's a fun group.

    I left feeling vindicated. I knew everyone would appreciate a crotch kicking midget Jell-O wrestler. What's not to like?

    I don't feel like being in traffic tonight. I'm hitting the lake for a long walk instead. I Hope to be there next month.

    I mentioned a few weeks ago the possibility of going across the street afterwards (after helping David cleanup) for a drink and conversation. Unfortunately, I have to leave a little early tonight to pick up my wife at the airport. I hope you will do this anyway.

    I look forward to hearing everyone's readings next week!
    In case anyone's interested, here's the reason I missed last month's Dime Stories -- I had to spend a whole quarter's worth of words making the keynote address at Platt College's graduation commencement.
    Enjoy? :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
