Well, it’s not the way we planned it, but it looks very likely that we are going to be eased back into Studio Faire life nice and gently with the arrival of our first resident of 2021 next week!

We are currently preparing the rooms (following 17 months of silence) to be filled with creativity, chat and laughter once again.


Our first, amazingly talented resident this year will be Brooklyn based writer and editor, Abby Schreiber.

Most recently, Abby was the Executive Editor at PAPER Magazine where she oversaw the publication’s quarterly print issues top to bottom, writing and editing stories in the entertainment, fashion, internet culture, politics and activism realms, among others.

While at PAPER, Abby wrote news-making cover stories on Amanda Bynes, DJ Khaled and Bella Hadid; landed a rare interview with Lance Armstrong that explored his life in the decade since coming clean; and collaborated with talent like Colin Kaepernick, Rihanna and Lady Gaga to produce compelling, attention-grabbing covers and issues. In addition to PAPER, she has written for publications like New York Magazine, Numéro, Vogue, BlackBook and VICE.

During her micro-residency at Studio Faire she will be working on a fictional screenplay, whilst soaking up the atmosphere of the South West of France.

Wish us luck for a smooth reopening!
