Last January, we had the pleasure of working with our friends at The Paris Review to find our first Writer-in-Residence Lysley Tenorio. He described his three-week stay at The Standard, East Village as, "ideal for writing, a cocoon that still opened up to the world outside. To work effectively, to stay inspired, I need to be able to tuck myself away from reality yet still have access to it, so that view was perfect, always engaging but never overwhelming."
It's time for Part Two. Today through May 1, we’re accepting applications for one writer to stay the first three weeks of July, free of charge. As before, applicants must have a book under contract and will be judged by the editors of The Paris Review and Standard Culture. You get free breakfast and all the coffee you require. Please find full submission details here.
