Philly Storied City Turns the Spotlight on Locals and Their Stories

Since last October, the people of Philadelphia have been bringing the Short Story Dispensers to life through our Philly Storied City project and we couldn’t be happier with the results. As of today, 10 Short Story Dispensers have been installed in Philadelphia and more than 20 local authors have been published across the city and some, internationally.
This amazing project is just getting started and we hope it’ll inspire other cities to create something local, with us by their side!

Our latest innovation: the Short Story Cube!

A smaller, more portable table-top version of the iconic Short Story Dispenser, the Short Story Cube is designed for school and library engagement. It can be used to promote reading in classrooms, or can be shared between library branches. Languages, reading level, themes… the programming possibilities from our collections are infinite!
When combined with the Short Story Portal (a connected reading and writing submission platform), teachers & librarians are able to instantly print stories written by kids & patrons, allowing everyone to return home with their story.
