I am a writer/writing professor at Berklee College of Music looking for a place to write from September to May, in a place I well love. This year, as my landlord/friend is reconfiguring her property, I have to move. So, on the crux of finishing my book, I am looking for a place that is both inspired and inspiring to nestled into, one I can afford, and one I can write in.
Wondered if anyone out there would be willing to rent their place at a writerly rate (!) for the winter months: Sept-May (2019/2020). I am VERY responsible, clean and considerate. I can attend to your cottage/cabin/home/barn, leave when/if you or family visits, keep your home safe, clean and perhaps well gardened or preened. I'd love to work something out--something best for you, in order to create a space to write in, for me.
In the last few years, I've made my spaces in both Manchester and Port Townsend, WA (where I write in the summers), beautiful, and well tended. As such, my landlords rent out the spaces fully-furnished, and beautifully appointed, for far more in the summers/winters. In effect, I will (if need be) beautify your space with art, antiques, rugs, pottery, kitchen everything... leave it for the summer, and you can rent it out fully-furnished, at a higher rate. Hopefully, a win-win for all.
In essence, I need a place to land in September, to push forth my writing, my art. I can send samples upon request (just so you'll know I'm no schmuck), and references (so you know I'm a person of integrity). Just won some awards for several of my chapters, but as I'm a writing professor, finding time to write with any continuity is challenging, so finding a place I can do so in, would be amazing. So, let me know. Just reaching out and hopinghoping....
My wish list:
UNfurnished or furnished, cozy place w/ source of heat (wood/pellet stove... can run both as grew up w/ both).
Biking distance to a nearby town (library, cafe, grocer).
Biking distance to beach... need the smell, the swell and the taste of ocean in me and on me....
