Libraries' Short Edition partnership with Schlow grows to welcome local writers

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.
