Are you are writer looking for free housing? Are you willing to relocate? Maybe Detroit is the place for you? Write-A-House is a unique non-profit group based in Detroit, Michigan that helps to train people in construction skills by renovating abandoned houses. When the homes are 80% complete, the group gives the houses to writers who are willing to move to Detroit. The writers are then responsible to complete the rehabilitation work, pay property taxes and homeowner insurance. After two years of residency, the writers in residency receive full title to the houses.
