Detroit takes its writer's residency program seriously, writers end up owning a renovated home! Write A House is accepting applications for its 2015 program now!
Started in 2014, Write A House renovates vacant, foreclosed homes in Detroit offering vocation training to high school students and homes to artists. Their first recipient, a poet & historian named Casey Rocheteau, is happily living in what she calls " The Brave New Home." Now their 2015 program is open!
Write A House’s homes are located in an active, creative and diverse neighborhood of Detroit. This neighborhood was chosen with great care and deliberation. We’re not seeking to push current residents out, or drive up rental costs; we’re looking to invest in and help stabilize the area. This city has seen enough displacement, and we seek to build with conscience. We’re looking for writers who want to live and take root in Detroit and become a part of its rich creative landscape. It doesn’t matter where you come from, even if you already live in Detroit. If you are a U.S. citizen or Permanent Resident with a valid Green Card, we encourage you to apply.
