December 2017 DimeStories Favorites
First, my sincerest apologies for taking so long to get last month’s stories up! Thanks to our always present, helpful, and wonderful organizers and helpers: Liz Zuercher, Cindy Berg, Nancy Milby, and this month’s host Nicholas Thurkettle.
Also a huge thank you to all our readers and listeners for your continual support and imaginative and interesting stories. Our three favorite stories this month were:
Nicholas Thurkettle – “A Little Doom for Christmas”
Pam Tallman – “Gifted”
Cindy Berg – “December 2012”
Enjoy these stories, and check out some of our older ones in our archives.
Looking forward to hearing more great stories and schmoozing with all the readers and listeners over wine and snacks on January 14. 2018 for our next DimeStories open mic. As always, sign-ups begin at 5:00 pm, and we begin readings at 5:30 pm. Come a little early and/or stay a little late for some schmoozing, snacks and wine.
3315 Hyland Avenue, Suite H

If you’re new to the group, your story must be prose, your own work, 3 minutes or less (approximately 500 words), but can be fiction, non-fiction, or something in between! ALSO, you do NOT need to read. You can come and listen this first time, or forever.
Also, as a heads up – we ask for a $5.00 donation per person to help cover our membership in the National DimeStories organization (helps keep these web pages up), as well as to help cover the costs of the food and drink we serve.
