November 2018 DimeStories Stories
DECEMBER 2018 WILL BE OUR FINAL DIMESTORIES MEETING. Please come join us for this potluck event. Bring your favorite dish AND your favorite story! You can bring an old favorite or a new offering. And here are all the stories from November. We had a small and mighty group, and are sharing with you all of our readers offerings.
Thanks to our always present, helpful, and wonderful Nancy Milby and her store LCA Wines. Nancy is our wine and food maven as well as space provider.
Also a HUGE thank you to all our readers and listeners for your continual support and imaginative and interesting stories, and to Nancy Grossman-Samuel for makeshift hosting.
Enjoy ALL of our stories from this month below.
Our November stories were:
Lynn Bonas – “Thanksgiving”
DC Henderson – “Trees”
Mike Neis – “The Curan”
Jim Topping – “RSVP”
Liz Zuercher – “Be a Secretary”
Enjoy these stories, and check out some of our older ones in our archives.
Please come on December 9th for our final DimeStories meeting. Bright food (for a potluck) and bring either an old story you enjoyed reading or a new one you enjoyed writing.
As always, sign-ups begin at 5:00 pm, and we begin readings at 5:30 pm. Come a little early and/or stay a little late for some schmoozing, snacks and wine.
3315 Hyland Avenue, Suite H
Costa Mesa, CA 92626
If you’re new to the group, your story must be prose, your own work, 3 minutes or less (approximately 500 words), but can be fiction, non-fiction, or something in between. ALSO, you do NOT need to read. You can come and listen this first time, or forever.
Also, as a heads up – we ask for a $5.00 donation per person to help cover our membership in the National DimeStories organization (helps keep these web pages up), as well as to help cover the costs of the food and drink we serve.
