Join Sundance Film Festival maven Kimberly Wetherell as she hostesses DimeStories Brooklyn on February 7th. Get there early to sign up to read. Readings start promptly at 7pm, and the first gong rings at 7:03pm! Warm us with your 3-minute stories.
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.
DimeStories Brooklyn at Barbes at 7pm on December 3rd! First DimeStories Open Mic of the new decade! Please note that the time is wrong on the newsletter. It’s 7pm, not 8pm You’ll miss half the show if you show up at 8.

The Ruby Room worked out splendidly for the crowd of over 50 this November. Looks like it’s going to work out just fine. For those of you stuck over in the hidey spot around the corner, next month we are going to rearrange the set up of the mic, so those on the balcony can see and hear all the goings on.
Check out the San Diego page under Live Events on this website for the audience selected pieces posted this month! Did you make the cut? We have some fine selections. Every month you have a chance to get your piece posted as well. Just polish til it shines!
