Whatever the weather, Penn State University Libraries knows you’ve got a story to share. Now open for submissions through Friday, April 3, the latest Short Stories Writing Contest challenges Penn State students, faculty and staff University-wide to tap into their creativity and submit their original short stories or poems on the theme “April Showers.”
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".

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.
