Be a Literary Citizen, Get a Free House

writehouse_house_exterior_cleanup_homeCheck 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.
