Special Program / The 2018 Creative Nonfiction Writers’ Conference

2018 Conference Venue


Point Park University // Downtown Pittsburgh

The 2018 Creative Nonfiction Writers’ Conference is co-sponsored by Point Park University and will be held on their campus in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh.

In the last two decades, Point Park University has become one of Pittsburgh’s key players in the city’s downtown revitalization effort. In 2016, the Center for Media Innovation (CMI) was unveiled—a 4,000-square-foot New York City-style media hub where students can merge their energy and talents in one central location. The center features state-of-the-art facilities and serves as a laboratory for media innovation and collaboration.

The university is located within walking distance of Point State Park and Pittsburgh’s Cultural District, which is home to some of the city’s best theaters, galleries, restaurants, and festivals. The university is also near PPG Paints Arena, PNC Park, Heinz Field, Heinz History Center, the Carnegie Science Center, the Andy Warhol Museum, and the Mattress Factory Museum. Also located nearby are Pittsburgh’s major dining and nightlife areas: South Side, Station Square, and the Strip District.

A majority of the 2018 Creative Nonfiction Writers' Conference will occur in Lawrence Hall (212 Wood Street) with portions in Academic Hall (201 Wood Street) and the Center for Media Innovation (305 Wood Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222).
