LA Times Festival of Books-Here We Come!

Los Angeles Times Festival of Books has asked us back this year!  If you live in Southern California and would like to be one of the Ten DimeStories Authors who will read live on the Etc Stage on Saturday, April 24, polish your best Dimes and read at any DimeStories event in February or March and you’ll be considered.  Accepted authors will be notified by the end of March. If you haven’t been to the Festival, it’s and amazing weekend of authors and storytellers and booksellers and just literary ooze streaming down the sidewalks.

iTunes is singing our song!

Give DimeStories podcasts subscriptions to your lover for Valentine’s Day!  It’s free!  But they’ll never suspect when they hear the likes of Jack Handey, Scott Carrier and our very own Scott Barbour and Victoria Melekian.  Subscribe today, download the current episodes, sync your iPod and listen on your way to work.  Many, many more dimestories are in production for future iTunes episodes.  Want to be on iTunes?  Then write your best damn story and read at one of our open mics.  Our curators are standing by for selections.

Dime-Off UCSD Kick-Off

This Tuesday, January 12th at 8pm, the Dime-Off starts its UCSD kick-off event.  You don’t have to be a student to compete, you just have to write the best damn story to the theme, “Teeth” OR “Misunderstanding”.  You will be judged by your peers.  Check out Live Events Dime-Off San Diego for more details on how it works.  If you’re chicken, but you think you might like to see how it’s done, come just to listen.  But be prepared for blood and sweat splattering from inside the ring.  Or volunteer to be a judge!  Just ask us at the door and we’ll supply you with official status.  $5 entrance, students pay-as-you-can.
