In the article “Short-Story Vending Machines” (Upfront) I learned that there is now a new type of vending machine. These new inventions print out short stories for people to read. Readers can select the quantity that they want to read. The story is printed on a receipt-like paper for free. It is now located in about 30 locations in the US. The stories are originally in Frech and translated into English. The stories are submitted by people and the inventors are planning to include stories from Americans soon.
I think that this new vending machine is a good idea. It helps out people get their short stories read by other people. The stories are published for many people to access. I think that this will also help those new and upcoming authors get their work out there. People interested in reading more content by them will begin looking into their work.
Would you like to submit one of your stories to a vending machine for others to read?
