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.

    What a great Valentine's Day turnout! I'm stunned at how many people attended, some with their valentines in tow. Once again, thank you all for coming and sharing your stories. This event is by writers for writers and without you and your passion, this event wouldn't exist at all.

    Also, a HUGE thank you to everyone who helped clean up and rearrange the room. Y'all are godsends!

    Brush up on those St. Patrick's Day stories and we'll see you on March 14th!

    What great people and brave storytellers! I feel so good being around you guys. And David is the best emcee I can imagine. Clever, quick-witted and so personable, he keeps it rolling apace and makes us laugh. I feel grateful to be a part of Dime Stories.

    The last time I had any of my works displayed to an audience were my last 2 plays over 2 years ago. So I'm really excited to get myself back out there and meet other aspiring writers and artists. Look forward to meeting you all.

    This'll be my first event, so I'll just be observing. Hope I'll be able to participate the next time! :)
