DimeStories is a cool little nonprofit organization that hosts monthly prose open mics in various locations around the country. Founded by novelist Amy Wallen in San Diego, DimeStories is now managed by Jennifer Simpson, an awesome nonfiction writer living in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Jennifer, and the entire dime-sized staff, run on 100% volunteer power.
DimeStories are concise, 3-minute stories read by the author. They can be funny or heart-wrenching, fictional or factual, but they’re always true.
In honor of the National Day of Listening, a project of StoryCorps, DimeStories launched its Virtual Open Mic on November 23, 2012. The Inaugural Showcase includes my story, “First Friend.” You can listen to my recording (a first for me!), along with eight other tiny literary gems, at DimeStories Inaugural Showcase. I’m thrilled to be included. Thanks, Jenn!
Until next time,
