About Us


transmissions from Pittsburgh’s artistic underground

Basement Outpost is a compilation of local art and written word. It is a casual communal space for artistic expression and opinion. Your doodles on a napkin – the short poem you jotted in the margin of your work notes – your in-depth analysis on foreign relations – an old screenplay from college – your review of the latest Game of Thrones episode – submit it! 

The blog is meant as an outlet for individuals to display their art to the public and to foster a relaxed atmosphere for creative expression online. If you have something you think you want to share with us, please click on the submission guidelines for more information.

If you just want to sightsee and don’t necessarily want to submit something yourself, please feel free to browse. For more information about the blog, check out the Letter From the Editor.
