September 2017 DimeStories Favorites
First, thanks to Liz Zuercher who recorded your stories and did everything else (except for food – thanks Cindy Berg) and location (thanks Nancy Milby).
Again, we want to thank all our readers and listeners for making this meeting fun. There were 8 readers and you had 4 favorites (the number two spot was a tie).
Thanks to Terry Black for hosting, and again to Cindy Berg who brought you some delicious snacks. Also to Nancy Milby for providing the very comfortable and wonderful space as well as the diverse and delicious wines! Lastly, again, thanks to all our readers and listeners for making this a worthwhile Sunday night out! Hope to see you on October 8th for our next installment.
Here are our September favorites
Pam Tallman – “The Oops Option”
Nancy Milby – “Totality”
Terry Black – “The Great Laguna Anti-Nazi Counter Protest”
Nicholas Thurkettle – “Buttercream Sunset”
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 October 8th 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.

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.
