DimeStories provides as many opportunities as it can come up for authors of tiny tales to read their stories to a live audience. If you fear rejection, but want to hear applause–the open mic is for you. If you like some good-hearted fun competition, a Dime-Off is for you. If you want to be a star, and want to be selected to read in the spotlight, then aspire to write the best DimeStory you can and a Showcase may be in your future.
Open Mic Events
Just show up, and put your name in the bucket. You’re in! There is no other submission requirement.
