write-a-house: a fantastic model to mimic out of detroit
Ever heard of an in-residence program where you actually get to keep the residence??! That would be the case in this innovative new model coming out of Detroit.
Write A House accepted applications from working, "low-income" writers earlier this spring, which included writing samples and a letter of intent. Whoever wins (to be announced this month) will call Detroit home for at least the next two years. Writers will lease the homes from the nonprofit, a small amount to cover taxes and insurance. If they stay for 24 months, they'll be awarded the deed -- and Detroit will count another resident to its comeback. To read more about this awesome endeavor, CLICK HERE--->
