What we're about

Duke City DimeStories is part of a larger group that includes affiliates in San Diego, Laguna Beach, and Oceanside CA. We've held events occasionally in NYC and regularly at the LA Times Festival of Books.

Since 2010 DimeStories has been Albuquerque's only open mic for PROSE*
3-minute stories read by the author, fact, or fiction, funny, and/or heart-rending read before a live audience. $3 donation at the door. Friendly group of talented writers-- new voices always welcome!

Try your hand at sharing your own DimeStory (that's about 500 words)
