Write a House is a Non-Profit Project Encouraging Creativity in Detroit

By: Meghan Young - Published: • References: writeahouse.org & fastcoexist
Write a House is a non-profit initiative that is taking over abandoned homes across the city of Detroit to offer them to writers. Although this could be construed as a sort of bribe for creative residency, the state of the American city as well as the homes suggest otherwise. A lot of work has to be done to these homes, yet once renovated, they serve an admirable purpose.

Founded by two friends, a novelist and an editor, who wanted to foster the literary scene in Detroit, Write a House is currently raising funds on Indiegogo to fix up on the first house. Working in collaboration with Young Detroit Builders, an organization that trains youth in basic building skills, Write a House is one step closer to revitalizing the city.
