YEG is the First Airport in North America to Boast Short Story Dispenser

Flying out of the Edmonton International Airport (YEG) soon?

If you are looking for some literature while you wait for your flight, be sure to check out the short story dispenser located on the Departures level across from Gate 64. There you will find the tall, thin machine that will prints out free one or five minute stories on a piece of paper much like an ATM receipt.

The YEG short story machine features about 100 local authors, whose work is also showcased in dispensers around the world. You can also enjoy writings by authors from top travel destinations such as the Netherlands, Iceland, London and France.

This creative innovation comes from France-based company Short Édition, who developed their short story dispensers to raise literary awareness and encourage emerging and new writers.

YEG was the first airport in North America and second in the world to offer passengers this unique reading opportunity. In fact, their Short Story Dispenser was recently featured in a New York Times article about travellers’ favourite amenities in airports around the world!
