The Fourth Floor is proud to present the the 4th Floor Chapbook Series, in partnership with Philadelphia publishing house The Head & The Hand Press.

In fall 2014, The Head & The Hand Press installed a vending machine selling chapbooks, independently published short stories, at Science Leadership Academy. This machine carried the works of four YA authors and two current SLA students. While the vending machine is no longer at SLA (it now lives at Elixr Coffee Roasters), the series still includes those two original stories by SLA students, and will soon include a third.

If you are an SLA student, and are interested in seeing your 3,000-8,000 word story published, email Anna Sugrue at

You can buy the full 4th Floor Chapbook Series, including stories by SLA’s own Robert Marx and Ruby Anderson here.
