Since I'm only a poet, I couldn't take advantage of this, but I thought I'd pass it along:

Flux Factory (fluxfactory.org) an arts organization and collective in Long Island City, is doing a project called NOVEL this Spring. We will build cubicles at our gallery for three novelists. They will be isolated in these quarters for a month. During that month they will complete a novel from scratch. Every weekend there will be public readings. Food and such will be provided. We're currently working to get a publisher or publishing house to sponsor the project and/or commit to publishing the work. We are looking for published novelists and serious writers. Send list of publications if intrigued. Definitely a major challenge and a major commitment. We are not screwing around.
