More than just a lit mag, Weave is an organization based out of Pittsburgh, PA that seeks “to create a space for a cross-section of writers and artists of all walks of life to meet on the page, on the stage, and in workshop. We celebrate diversity in both the creator and their works and strive to showcase both novice and established writers and artists.” Weave will host a series of workshops that focus on the writing and submissions processes as well as on bringing poetry to the stage as a viable performance art. Weave will also collaborate with writers from their publication to present readings that will showcase Pittsburgh’s young literary talent. During open submission dates, Weave accepts poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction, flash fiction, short plays and visual art.
