In the shortest month of the year, Harvard Book Store made a book from scratch. Yet again!
In February, 2010, Harvard Book Store announced a unique literary project—we would create a brand new book, utilizing our brand new book making machine, in one month. The result, Microchondria: 42 Short Short Stories Collected by Harvard Book Store, was an anthology of micro fiction submitted by writers from across the country, produced on our state-of-the-art print-on-demand machine, “Paige.”
Five years later, we did it again on our updated Espresso Book Machine. That March we launched Microchondria II: 42 More Short Short Stories Collected by Harvard Book Store with an energetic and inspiring launch event in the store.
It's fast becoming a yearly tradition. The latest call for entries opened on February 1st. All entrants will hear from us by March 1st.
Join the Party!
The Microchondria III release party is open to all, and will feature readings by selected contributors to our latest Harvard Book Store anthology, printed right here in the bookstore. We’ll even be printing copies of Microchondria III during the event! Get a book hot off the presses. Refreshments will be served.
Come sample some fiction by local writers and learn more about custom book printing at Harvard Book Store.
