You don’t have to live in Pittsburgh to belong to the PittsburghFlashFiction community of adult readers. You just have to enjoy good writing that tries to entertain, inform and inspire a diverse readership.
Welcome to Pittsburgh’s #1 locally published online girlie magazine of commentary, pop culture and sex as art and entertainment.
Hello, I’m the Old Soldier, a Vietnam War veteran. I got my MFA in fiction writing at the University of Pittsburgh in 2006 and I’ve been blogging for about ten years now. After many false starts and many hard knocks and several blogs that went nowhere, I think I’m finally ready for primetime.
The girlie magazine you see before you is a labor of love. It is art for the sake of art. It is the Old Soldier’s salute to Andy Warhol.
Andy Warhol, who grew up in the neighborhood I live in, would probably think my little girlie magazine was a piece of trash. And Andy would know. Part of his genius was the ability to take what society consumed and threw away and to turn it into art.
And in my mind the PittsburghFlashFiction is definitely art, a work of art in progress. I’m offering my art to the world free of charge. All I ask is that you experience my art with an open mind.
Starting tomorrow a different erotic flash fiction story by Anna Bayes will be featured on the front page every day for the next several days. So be sure to come back tomorrow. This is the Old Soldier reporting from North Oakland in Pittsburgh.
