I received an email today from the folks at Write A House. While my writing has taken a back seat to social media recently, I still love the Write A House program and would love to see more writers take advantage of this. If you’re a writer and interested in a free house just for being a good neighbor, check this out!
You are receiving this email because you have previously expressed an interest in Write A House, whether it be to apply, donate, or simply receive more information. Write A House is a Detroit-based nonprofit organization that purchases vacant homes and renovates them with the help of vocational training programs. These homes are then awarded to low-to-moderate income writers with no strings attached, assuming the writer plans to use the home as a primary residence. In 2014, we awarded our first home to poet-historian Casey Rocheteau, to much success and fanfare. We are excited to contact you now and announce a second round of applications beginning on April 27.
If you are interested in applying, please note that there is a $15 early-bird application fee for the first two weeks, rising to $25 afterwards. We have expanded our application criteria to accept both American citizens and permanent residents. Submissions will be accepted between April 27 and June 5. Click here for more information on applying.
If you are interested in donating to the cause, you can do so here. Write A House is a 501(c)(3) organization, and all contributions are tax-deductible. We thank you in advance for your generosity.
