The Albuquerque Dime Stories group celebrates its anniversary.

Duke City Dime Stories coordinator Jennifer Simpson hosts an anniversary reading for the Albuquerque Dime Stories group in honor of its anniversary. Each contributor will read a three-minute prose piece. Free and open to the public. 


Since before 3-Minute Fiction on NPR, DimeStories have been heard at open mic events around the country where some are recorded, and some have been optioned for podcasts and public radio. DimeStories have been heard on: KUOW 94.9 Public Radio Puget Sound, Remix Radio, KUT in Austin, Texas, and WTIP in Minnesota.

DimeStories are 3-minutes stories (prose, not poetry) read by the author. They’re funny, they’re heartwrenching. Fictional or factual, they’re always true.

Founded by novelist Amy Wallen, DimeStories is now managed by Jennifer Simpson, a writer living in Albuquerque. Jennifer, and the entire dime-sized staff, is run on 100% volunteer power. In other words, we do the best we can!
