The Writing Pittsburgh Book Series

The Writing Pittsburgh books will be an in-depth exploration of the region's charms, advantages, opportunities, character, and characters—not to mention its warts and idiosyncrasies—for an international audience of readers.

Three books in three years!

1. Neighborhoods. The first book will be a collection of true stories about the ways in which Pittsburgh’s unique and diverse neighborhoods define and fortify our region. We've selected our finalist authors, and their stories will be published in 2017. Meet our finalists >>

2. Technology. The second book will focus on the region’s scientific, medical, and technology communities and the revolutionary organizations that have helped transform our region. More details and information will be available soon.

3. The third book will be a single-author book-length work of creative nonfiction with a significant connection to contemporary Pittsburgh. We are currently accepting proposals for the book; learn more and submit your proposal here.
