I have mixed emotions over the idea behind Write A House but I thought I would share it with you, my readers, because it might be of use to some of you.
It’s fairly simple. If you are a writer, you can apply for a free house in Detroit. The up side, you can get a house rent free (minus utilities, taxes and with contingent on some other rules.) The downside you have to live in Detroit which has become a fairly crime-ridden city.
But someone has to turn around Detroit don’t they? And hey if successful, maybe Detroit will turn into a little piece of art heaven which you can be a part of. For poor starving artists like myself, well, it would give you a roof over you head and a place to write.
You can check out writeahouse at their website. They have more detail about the application process and rules that apply.
