Lit. Orgs

Pittsburgh has a rich heritage of literary institutions…

There must be something in our three rivers that inspires people to organize around their shared love of literature of all kinds. Pittsburgh is home to many organizations, large and small, including literary publications, local publishers, and unique reading series which foster creativity and make up our vibrant literary scene. We encourage you to click through the below organizations, which are each doing their part to make Pittsburgh “Littsburgh”!

If you would like to suggest an organization or group for inclusion on this page, please email us with a logo, a brief description of the organization, and any relevant website and social links.

Run a literary organization?
