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 a numbers person who loves getting of those little squares into the big wide world of WORDS (my real love). NEVER KNEW a door donation was suggested - I owe you a TON of money.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
