Thanks to the collaboration of the Knight Foundation and the Public Library Association, we are thrilled to announce that we have 12 new Short Story Dispensers installed in the United States!
The Knight Foundation has generously donated three machines to four individual PLA libraries: Akron Summit County Public Library, Free Library of Philadelphia, Richland Library and Wichita Public Library. In turn, the libraries have decided to promote their services by placing the dispensers in large community areas, such as hospitals, airports, museums, and medical centers. What a great way to raise literary awareness.
The next step in this initiative will be the launch of Short Edition’s first American writing contest on September 25th! Hosting the contest alongside the designated PLA libraries, we hope to celebrate and encourage new and experienced writers across the country. More exciting details about this competition are coming soon!
