For the last couple of years David Raines has been coordinating the San Diego DimeStories chapter, handling everything from emceeing the Open Mic events, to schlepping food and drink, and handling all kinds of behind-the-scenes duties. He recently announced he’s stepping down.
But don’t worry, he’ll still be around, and with the Orange County chapter of DimeStories serving as the inspiration, San Diego DimeStories will be handled by a committee! There will be a rotating group of emcees, starting with DimeStories forever favorite funny guy, Alex Bosworth (more on Alex with our next post), who will emcee the upcoming February Open Mic while Joanne Gorman will be in charge of the refreshments and Ed Coonce will be recording.

$5 donation at the door much appreciated.
REMINDER: 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.
Beware: Three-minute rule (that’s about 500 words) is strictly enforced.
Your San Diego Steering Committee includes: David Raines (who couldn’t completely walk away), Alex Bosworth, Ed Coonce, Joanna Gorman, Eber Lambert, Amy Wallen (she’s training the time keeper, so keep those stories at 3 minutes!), Shannon Bates, and Jill Badonsky.
Thanks to all of you who arrive with your stories in hand, to all of you who come early and help set up, and stay a little later to clean up.
Special thanks ALWAYS to support from San Diego Writers Ink.
