Millions of stories for a more poetic world !

When I read about the fabulous Short Story Dispenser by French publisher Short Edition, I imagined how wonderful it would be for each school to have their own short story dispensing machine. Then, as I was walking along a corridor of my own school, I noticed that there is a designated wall where students can leave their artwork, which that day was mostly photos and illustrations. I started wondering how many schools might have similar boards or walls for students which could be used for sharing not only visual arts, but also stories.

A new kind of vending machine came to Carolina this week, dispensing free short stories written by UNC-Chapel Hill students, faculty and staff.
The literary vending machines print a blend of original, classic and contemporary works of literature at eight locations throughout campus and in Chapel Hill, including the Carolina Union, Adams School of Dentistry and the Chapel Hill Public Library, to encourage people to engage with the literary arts. The installation is a collaboration between Arts Everywhere, UNC Press, the College of Arts & Sciences’ Department of English and Comparative Literature, and publishing company Short Edition. “Bringing literature into the daily lives of people who may not normally be in that fictional fold is going to be valuable to everybody,” said Daniel Wallace, Creative Writing Program director and professor.

“As a library, we want to help students engage in creative activities, pleasure reading and personal enrichment,” said librarian Liz Bellamy. “And the fact that we went through an entire roll of paper the very first day shows that students really want that too,” said Liz Bellamy.
