Who wants to live in Norman Mailer's house?

British GQ is holding a writing contest for UK undergrad and grad students over 18 and the winter gets to live at his former Provincetown home, now a writers' colony, next July. (Lovely time to be on the Cape.) Mailer loved Provincetown and had lived there full-time for a decade before his death in 2007. Judges for the contest include novelists Geoff Dyer and Tony Parsons, Jamie Byng of the Scottish publisher Canongate and singer Lily Allen.

If you aren't eligible you can still apply for a fellowship at the writers' colony, which includes free lodging and tuition "and a bicycle for local transport." Had I but talent and temperament...
