Short Édition is a French publishing house of short literature: poetry, short stories, and flash fiction. In addition to [their] online platform, [they] publish fiction around the world via our Short Story Dispensers for the public to enjoy a serendipitous literary experience, free of charge.”

Eight short story dispensers are scattered across UNC-Chapel Hill as part of a collaborative partnership with UNC Press, the Department of English & Comparative Literature, UNC’s Creative Writing Program, and Arts Everywhere.

“Built especially with the Carolina community in mind, the dispensers are customized to feature two buttons—’Carolina Stories’ and ‘Global Stories.’ The ‘Global Stories’ button features a catalog of short stories from around the world. The ‘Carolina Stories’ button publishes local authors who can submit their short stories, non-fiction and poetry.”
