“Send My Mail to The Standard, East Village”

New York-Competitions

There’s just something about the idea of writing in a well-appointed hotel room. Perhaps it’s the anonymity that a hotel affords. Or maybe it’s having someone else take care of those pesky, mundane tasks…whatever it may be, we’re thrilled to announce the third installment of our writer-in-residence program in conjunction with The Paris Review at The Standard, East Village.

Our first resident was a fiction writer…then came a poet…and we can’t wait to see who will check-in next. In keeping with years past, applicants will have a book under contract, and the winner will be selected by The Paris Review and Standard Culture. Our resident will have up to three distraction-free weeks to focus on their work-in-progress while basking in the comforts of hotel life — no dishes, no distractions - just a sweeping city view and a nice, quiet room in the center of it all. Sounds like writer’s heaven, no? Oh, and breakfast, coffee, and an evening cocktail are compliments of the house.
