DimeStories are 3-minutes stories read by the author. Equal parts seductive and tiny, DimeStories are funny. They’re heartwrenching. They’re fictional or factual but, either way, they’re all true. Our Live Events take place in cities across the country from New York City to San Diego with standing room only crowds. To find out about a DimeStories event in your area visit www.dimestories.org. New DimeStories are uploaded each month.
