Short Story Dispenser

Short Édition’s Short Story Dispenser puts a modern, customizable twist on literature and fuses the timelessness of the printed word with innovation.

The content comes from the French publishing house’s community publishing platform and it helps to spotlight the work of clients and local authors alike.

With the Short Story Dispenser, fans of the written word can choose to receive a story that’s one-, three- or five-minutes in length.

Seattle coffee shop The Station has a Short Story Dispenser on site, so that guests can print off a short story as they wait for their order.

The machine was paid for by the Seattle Public Library Foundation and already, it has dispensed 900 stories so far, and provided even more entertainment and positive experiences.
