Stephen King Opens Maine Mansion (and Horror Archive) To Aspiring Writers

Authors Stephen King and his wife Tabitha are opening their Maine home to aspiring writers. The Victorian home is in Bangor, Maine, a city that inspired the town of “Derry” where “It” takes place.

Recently the Kings have been spending time in their homes in Florida and other parts of Maine and wanted to do something with this one. So, they filed a request to turn the property, which includes two homes, into a nonprofit.

On Facebook, Stephen King wrote they are planning to provide housing for up to five writers at a time. According to The Columbian the plan right now is to turn the King’s former home into an archive where people can get inspiration and the home next door into housing.

Access to the archive will only be for writers in residence to restrict the property from becoming a museum. The king’s say they have neighbors and wanted to respect their privacy. The project is a few years from completion, but you might want to prepare your application.
