Call for Submissions:

Soon enough (I promise) I’ll give another super long blog post to recap all of the great workshops we’ve had over the last month, and talk about how awesome it has been to watch the group grow.  I’m still flabbergasted to see our facebook group has 60 members.

But in honor (or because of) our first anniversary, it’s time for us to begin to advertise the group’s call for submissions.  Our goal is to share the work of the brilliant writing community in Pittsburgh by curating a new online literary magazine that also showcases the benefits of working in a community of writers.  As result, we are aiming to publish about 50% material from within the group and 50% will be free game for all of you Pittsburgh-based writers out there.

Tentatively we plan to host our first reading at The Inn ( in early December.
