Halifax in the house!

There's an informal reciprocal relationship between Pittsburgh and Halifax, Nova Scotia. Some of our folks have attended residencies there, at the Anchor Archives project, and now we're pleased to have a Haligonian as a visiting writer this month.

Mark your calendars for the event that our visiting writer is hosting at the end of the month. We hope to see you there.

Writing Oppressions Not Your Own:
Queer feminist writer Mary Burnet reads from her novel addressing some of the oppressive histories of Nova Scotia, and shares her research and writing process. Come join a discussion about how folks can (and whether or not we/they should) write about oppressions that aren't our/their own, while remaining accountable to people who experience those oppressions and taking responsibility for our/their privilege.

Sunday, May 30th, 4-6 pm
Cyberpunk Apocalypse
5431 Carnegie St.
