A writer is defined by one or more of the following: he/she is currently a college student with a major in creative writing and/or English; he/she has graduated from college with a major in creative writing and/or English; he/she has one foot working on a creative writing project, such as a book, and one foot in the work world. It is important that the Writers House welcome anyone who feels his/her identify tied to creative written expression, whether or not college can, or will, play a part in that.
Subsidized is defined as rented for a year at the projected cost of maintenance, including heat, hot water, water/sewer taxes, property insurance, property taxes, propane, etc. The rent is currently $600/month, which is below market for the two bedroom, 800 sq. ft. condo on two floors with a full basement, washer and dryer, outdoor patio, on site parking.
The Writers House encourages any writers to become residents, but especially those from minority groups, such as the LGBTQ community, whose subject matter (writing content) might not always be welcome.
