Poet Writes Her Way to a Free Home in Detroit: Casey Rocheteau to be celebrated this Friday
“Write A House is thrilled to name poet Casey Rocheteau as the winner of its first residency in Detroit. Rocheteau will receive a newly renovated home that is hers to keep, forever. She expects to move from Brooklyn to Detroit in November.
“’I am elated to have been chosen!” said Rocheteau. “Being granted with this opportunity to take root in a city so rich with history, creativity and tenacity is truly an honor. I look forward to exploring Detroit and getting to know its literary community.’”
Any poet would be happy to receive kind words from Billy Collins about his or her work.
