Pam Tallman – “Film at Eleven”
Tracy Neis “My Friend Ronny”
Anita Razin – “To Live and Die in LA”
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 June 10th, 2018 during 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.
