Be a Literary Citizen, Get a Free HousePosted: December 18, 2013 Filed under: Actions, Shining Examples | Tags: Detroit, residency, Write-a-House Leave a comment
Check out the mission of Write-a-House:
Our mission is simple: to enliven the literary arts of Detroit by renovating homes and giving them to authors, journalists, poets, aka writers. It’s like a writer-in-residence program, only in this case we’re actually giving the writer the residence, forever.
And here’s the best part, how you get to keep the house: be a literary citizen.
The WAH Author-in-Residence will also be expected to:
- contribute content to the WAH blog on a regular basis.
- participate in local readings and other cultural events
- use the home as their primary residence.
- In general, they will be responsible home owners, engaged neighbors, committed city residents and good literary citizens.
Apply for a residency and spread the word.
