At January’s SoCal Dime Stories, three authors’ readings were selected as the stand-outs of the night. These authors are Bernie Nofel, Like the Witch to the Scarecrow, Tim Callaway, Kumundrum, and Cheryl Sonstein, Put It In a Bubble. and Erica Bouris for The Border (no audio). Congratulations to them and hope you enjoy listening!
These pieces are now eligible to be considered for Dime Stories Podcast.
A friend asked me the other day if we’d done more podcast episodes! She hadn’t listened since the 2nd one. “We’re on our seventh!” I said. Exclaimed, really. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should. Each episode is just about 15 minutes and the stories all revolve around a theme. We’ve heard stories about parents, childhood, food, home, and aging. And our newest episode, just in time for the Christmas and New Years holidays (lots of humor and lots of bleeping).

2010 marks the return of the Dime-Offs. Mark your calendars for the second Tuesdays of the month. Dime-Offs will be at UCSD’s The Loft. Themes will be posted on the website and in the newsletter each month. January’s themes are: teeth and misunderstanding.
Join DimeStories on January 12 at 8pm to kick-off the Dime-Off!
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!
