Deadline: October 15, 2016
One of the books in the Writing Pittsburgh series will be a single-author book-length work of creative nonfiction with a significant connection to contemporary Pittsburgh. This book could be a work of immersion journalism, a memoir with a strong connection to the present, a collection of essays, a series of profiles, a travelogue … or something else! The only real limitations are that the work must be nonfiction, have a strong Pittsburgh element, and appeal to a broad national audience.
The selected author will receive editorial, publicity, and marketing support from In Fact Books; publication and national distribution of the book; and an advance against royalties of $7,500.
