Pinch yourself, fellow dreamers and creative writers: Someone wants to pay you to sit, surrounded by books, and write all day.
The cozy Pilot Books up on Capitol Hill is giving the creative community a stab at this seemingly unreachable fantasy this summer in the form of Micro-Residencies.
Here’s the sitch: Pick a day (or two) when you’re free to work at Pilot Books (and work, of course, means making intellectual and literary conversation on top of ringing up a few purchases), and in your down time, devote yourself to crafting that masterpiece.
On top of the $80 per day you’ll pocket, Pilot Books will publish whatever poetry, prose, fiction, or comics that spring forth during your residency in a limited edition chapbook series, FINANCIALS.
To make this almost-too-good-to-be-true dream possible, prove you’ve got the right stuff by emailing your best work, a short bio, and an idea of what you’d like to work on during your residency to [email protected]
Out of towners, fear not: Summer Robinson, the owner of Pilot Books, is even throwing in free lodging on her couch, if needed.
