To apply for Standard East Village's writer-in-residence program, you'll need to provide an excerpt of a work in progress of up to 50 pages; a letter from the publisher confirming that the work is under contract; and a cover letter explaining how the residency would benefit your work in progress. And you better hurry because applications are due by November 1st.
While this is the first writer-in-residence program the Standard has offered, it's not the first time they've collaborated with the Paris Review. Their short story competition last year was judged by, among others, the journal's editor Lorin Stein. It all sounds very civilized and quite a departure from the Boom Boom Room and public nudity associations of the other NYC Standard. Lovely to see André Balazs is making good on his promise to make nice with the neighbors.
If you don't make the cut for the residency program, midweek January rates start at $325.
