City Of Asylum Pittsburgh

City of Asylum offers beautifully decorated houses on Samponsia Way to writers who have nowhere else to call home.

Here, persecuted writers can start a new life with a two-year residency, a $30,000 per year stipend, and health insurance. This is all thanks to the vision of program founder Henry Reese, who turned homes he already owned into a safe haven for writers.
