I have similar problems with "home." I have lived in so many places over the past seven years, have called so many different houses and apartments and dorms "home" that I've begun to wonder if it isn't best just to think of myself as home.

The Cyberpunk Apocalypse Visiting Writer Program is a one-month residency at the Cyberpunk Apocalypse writers house in Pittsburgh. The writers will be given a small bedroom at no cost and access to the same communal kitchen, bathroom, living space, etc. that is used by the long-term residents (again at no cost).
