Looking to Rent or Sit


Wanted in New York United States of America

Listing #138248

Looking for rent or house sit in New York or Berlin

Hello,

I am a 58-year-old, London-based journalist, critic and writer, specialising in cinema in particular, but also writing about theatre and politics. I'm about to take a four-month sabbatical, a large part of which I'd like to spent resident in either New York or Berlin, while also open to an appealing university town elsewhere in the US. The key is to be resident for around two months or so, in a stimulating environment in which to recharge away from deadlines and do some creative writing.

I'm open to how I do this: as a straightforward rental or a house sit, including cat sitting if required.

Thanks
Demetrios

About
I am 58. A London-based journalist, critic and writer, specialising in cinema in particular, but also writing about theatre and architecture. I've reviewed or otherwise written about films for most of the UK's broadsheets newspapers, as well as numerous magazines, notably Sight & Sound. I've also written or contributed to books about cinema, and have occasionally programmed film seasons. I've written extensively on South American Cinema. I also, currently, review theatre as a London stage correspondent for The Hollywood Reporter. The film job has allowed me to travel extensively over the years. But right now what I wish to do is take four months in one place, somewhere new, away from deadlines, to reboot, reflect and undertake some creative writing of my own. To that end, I'm looking for a place to stay in either Berlin or New York (though open to a nice university town in the US). I could do this as a straightforward rental, house sit, or as a swap with my flat in north London. For a period between April and July.
