The India DIY writer's residency


Richard Meros sets out to prove the possible impossible by taking fifty hotel rooms across the Indian sub-continent and failing to write anything significant in every one. Stick with him, and this page, as we document his slide from New Zealand's most prolific satirist (up yours Rodney Hide!) into the country's most hermetic has-been.

The failed writing experiments in this sprawling DIY artist residency will be recorded pictorially below. Woe to all who tries to write in forty degree heat or humbug humidity! Woe to all but Meros!
