Dime Stories — 3-Minute Prose

PLEASE BE AWARE OF A NEW LOCATION THIS MONTH

The Ink Spot

Art Center Lofts
[masked]th Street, Studio 210
San Diego, CA 92101

 

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.

 

If you're worried about parking, you may want to take the trolley.

    My professor is having some of us come tonight but he said it was at Lestat's, is that a different dime stories or is this the only one?

      It's the same DimeStories. We're at a different location tonight and possibly next month, as well.

      Hi, Gino. Thanks for coming last night. Could I get the name of your instructor? I'd like to thank him and keep him up to date on our location. I'd also love it if more of your class came, of course. :-)

    Sorry, but my friend and I drove around for 15 minutes looking for parking and left (trolly is not an option for us). Not a great venue for a Meetup group, especially for newcomers to San Diego. Hope you have a good meeting. Perhaps I'll attend in the future if you change the venue and there is parking available.

      Hi, Victoria. Yes, I know it was frustrating. We weren't at our usual venue tonight. Hopefully when San Diego Writers Ink settles into its new facility in June we'll have a more permanent venue with better parking. Keep an eye out for July's DimeStories.

      I hope you'll try to join us again in June.

    Thank you to everyone for showing up and reading at tonight's DimeStories. We weren't at our usual venue, parking was atrocious and the door intercom was dodgy so it was particularly heartening to see so many people attend.

    A very special thank you to everyone who showed up early to help set up. Without your help the whole thing would have been a train wreck. Thank you also to those who stayed behind to help tear down. Great night, great stories and great readers. Thanks again, everyone, and we'll see you in June!

    Maybe another time :-(

    If anyone felt an overwhelming desire to get there a little early and help me set up, I wouldn't turn you down. :-)

    I got an email saying 8 PM, not 7. David, please clarify.

    May 2, 2013

    • David

      It is 8:00. I've made the appropriate correction. Thank you, John.

    This DimeStories (and all future ones) may very well be at a different location so keep your eyes peeled.
