Short story dispensers now seeking talent from local writers


Image of Short story dispensers now seeking talent from local writersThe short story dispensers located across campus are now seeking content submissions from local writers on top of Penn State students and faculty members.
Penn State launched the short story dispensers on campus and in Schlow Library earlier this year to become the first institution to collaborate with Short Edition of Grenoble, France.
The dispensers allow you to choose a short story that takes anywhere between one and five minutes to read. Two of the four dispensers on campus are located at the entrances of the Pattee and Paterno Libraries.
“Since Schlow has a Short Edition dispenser from the start, it made sense to explore the possibility of adding community stories to our community content,” said Hailley Fargo, student engagement librarian for Penn State University Libraries.

[ US ] The Vending Machine That Spits Out Short Stories


Stories are shared many ways. They are recounted in books and magazines. They are read aloud around the campfire at night. They are randomly dispensed from stand-alone kiosks, doled out on strips of paper like grocery store receipts.
