Best Free Housing for a Writer

Write a House

Staff Pick

This nonprofit has a novel spin on the idea of the artists' residency: Instead of giving artists a place to live and create for a finite period of time, why not give them a place where they could live forever? The group has been rehabbing houses in a Detroit neighborhood just north of Hamtramck, and offered its first residency to 29-year-old poet and former Brooklynite Casey Rocheteau last year. They are currently seeking applications for a second house.
