From January 23 to November 1, take part in the Penn State Harrisburg Short Writing Contest. If you are a Penn State Harrisburg student, faculty, or staff, as well as a student from Central Dauphin East High School, submit your short story or poem to have the chance to be published in our Penn State Harrisburg Short Story Dispenser! Our theme is "Community: Lifting All Voices".
Penn State University Libraries’ Short Edition short story dispensers are now at five of its Commonwealth Campus library locations, including, John D. Vairo Library at Penn State Brandywine, Penn State Harrisburg Library, Berks Thun Library and John M. Lilley Library at Penn State Behrend. With its placement this semester of five additional short story dispensers, the University Libraries now has 10 short story dispensers University-wide, including one with community partner Schlow Centre Region Library, making it both the first and largest university partner with Short Edition worldwide.
Penn State University Libraries’ partnership with Schlow Centre Region Library in downtown State College will expand starting Nov. 1, when its Short Edition short story reading collaboration is extended to local-resident writers.
Centre County writers of original short fiction and poetry will be able to submit their creative works through the Libraries Short Stories website, psu.short-edition.com. Their submissions also may be considered for distribution through the Libraries’ four Short Edition short story dispensers on Penn State’s University Park campus, as well as its fifth dispenser in Schlow Library’s adult services department.
