Swedish guy offers free stay on private island for creatives

This is for real: Singapore-based Swedish author Fredrik Härén, is now inviting creatives to stay at his private island near Stockholm for free. The idea came to him when he bought his first island in the Philippines as a creative escape, and wanted to share the experience when he bought a second island in Sweden. Härén promises no other guests on the island will be present at the same time, while whoever’s accepted to stay on the island is welcome to bring up to five friends.

The only catch is that they’ll have to make a convincing case for why they should stay — and make a voluntary contribution to a charity if they can afford it. Applications are now open.
