If you are a struggling writer the key to sustaining your lifestyle may be to go to a city that’s struggling more.
A new nonprofit organization called Write-A-House, located in Detroit, Michigan (which, earlier this year, became the largest city in the United States to file for and enter bankruptcy) has found something creative to do with the city’s seemingly endless blocks of vacant homes—gut them from the inside-out, fix them up, and give them to writers.
Sarah Cox, one of the founders of Write A House said, “This is a city with unique, historic and fascinating stuff happening. We think there are writers who will want to come and be a part of it.”
We hope they can find neighborhoods somewhat free of muggings and carjackings.
