Applications Open for the Writing Residency of a Lifetime
Write A House is excited to announce that our 2015 round of applications is now open. They are a nonprofit that purchases vacant homes in Detroit, renovates them with the help of vocational training programs, and awards them to talented writers -- for keeps, forever, and with no strings attached. In 2014, they awarded our first home to Brooklyn-based poet-historian Casey Rocheteau. She is detailing her experience here, and her great advice on applying can be found here.
Details about our new application round here. A few things to note:
· Applications are open until .
· Apply by on to take advantage of the early-bird application fee.
· Eligibility is expanded this year to include not just US citizens, but also US permanent residents (green card holders).
· Applications are accepted in fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. Playwright and screenwriters apply under fiction. Journalists apply under nonfiction.
