A Hub for Creative Writing in South Florida (The Betsy Hotel)

Via The Betsy Hotel

Goal

To brand South Florida as a muse for authors by expanding a new writer-in-residence program on Miami Beach to include community outreach events.

To brand South Florida as a muse for authors, The Betsy Hotel will expand its new writer-in-residence program on Miami Beach. The program offers a private space for writers offering them the solitude and support necessary to complete their work. The award-winning writers will also participate in public readings and a workshop and art salon series. A biannual publication will contain commentary and works from the writers.

The mission of the Writer’s Room at The Betsy Hotel is to create a very special place on South Beach for writers and other creative artists where they can find the tranquility and inspiration needed to do their best work. The room is made available to visiting artists working in a wide variety of domains and disciplines – with a focus on poets during final-stage efforts. Betsy is a historic property committed to exploring the capacity of the arts to bridge past, present and future.
