- Artists Image Resource
Type of Event
In 2008, a kind of punk house appeared in Pittsburgh, based around literature instead of politics or music. Since then the Cyberpunk Apocalypse writers' project has housed 36 writers from across the US and Canada, and has been the place of completion of eight books, countless comics, zines, poems, essays and articles. Cyberpunk Apocalypse has acted as home base for six reading tours and has hosted events ranging from book clubs and show-and-tells, as well as the Heinz-funded Writers' Showcase series: Advancing Reading as Performance.
