DimeStories Orange County Open Mic
Join fellow writers at LCA Wine in Costa Mesa for an evening of GREAT stories. Bring YOUR 3-minute story, that's about 500 words, to share. There will be wine and perhaps some snacks. $5 at the door to help defray our costs. Sign up at 5 pm, Readings begin at 5:30 pm This open mic series has been going strong since 2004 in San Diego, an additional chapter opened in Orange County five years ago, and one in Albuquerque four years ago. Most recently a Temecula chapter started up last year. This is a great community of writers, committed to sharing the best in short prose. It's a supportive environment, worse that will happen is you'll get applause :-)
