February 2017 DimeStories Favorites
Thanks to everyone who came Sunday night. It was a nice crowd with some new and lots of tried and true folks. We had some really fun new stories. Everyone got votes again, but there were four that topped the list.
Looking forward to seeing you all again on March 12th for our next DimeStories open mic. As always, sign-ups begin at 5:00 pm, and we begin readings at 5:30 pm.
3315 Hyland Avenue, Suite H
Costa Mesa, CA 92626
Looking forward to hearing all of your great stories and schmoozing with all the readers and listeners over wine and snacks.
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.
