From The Director
PittWriters is a large and diverse community of poets, novelists, short story writers, essayists and journalists interested in traditional forms and emerging media. The work we produce is wide-ranging, ambitious and provocative, and is likely to appear anywhere--from venerable literary journals like Callaloo to groundbreaking digital publications like The Atavist to any of the legendary magazines like The New Yorker. The visiting writers we bring in through our Pittsburgh Contemporary Writers Series attract large and enthusiastic audiences from around the region. We welcome all new writers interested in producing serious work in a collaborative community setting.
