Sangam House is a writers residency program just outside of Pondicherry in the southeast Indian state of Tamil Nadu. Up to seven writers at a time—from South Asia and the rest of the world—are invited to live together while they grind out their latest work—stories, poetry, scripts, and all those arrangements of words that don’t fit neatly into any of these categories. fD advisor and Sangam co-founder, DW Gibson is documenting the 2010 residency for BOMB magazine in a series of blog posts that take a look at what sharing a physical space means to an artistic community.
