Located at the birthplace of the Ohio River, Confluence is Pittsburgh's longest-running literary conference with a strong focus on science fiction, fantasy and horror. Award-winning authors, editors, artists and song-writers gather for three full days, holding panel discussions, concerts and talks that will broaden and deepen your appreciation of your favorite genres. Welcoming and personal, Confluence gives the attendees a unique opportunity to meet and chat with the writers and artists who create the SF/F/H culture today, and are shaping the movement of science fiction and fantasy in the future.
