Plain Site is an ongoing experiment in the communal writing process and in fostering a communal life. The site of experimentation can be found anywhere on earth. The partnership between J. Velasco and S. Whittemore formed in 2014 as a series of formalized correspondences, the project has grown to include residencies, or writing stays, in New Orleans, LA, Atlanta, GA and Evergreen, AL. Writing Stays consists of extended hours of contemplation in (sub)urban settings with the intent of locating paradise in our everyday surroundings.
