Lysley Tenorio Is the Standard's East Village Hotel's First Writer in Residence

It has been a long time since the average struggling novelist could afford to live and work in downtown Manhattan.

Earlier this year, Lucy McIntyre, vice president of marketing for the Standard hotels, and Lorin Stein, editor of the literary magazine Paris Review, were lamenting this state of affairs—"what a fantasy it would be," Mr. Stein said, "to have the time and the means to just write in a hotel."

Emilia Serrano (Communication, 1995) describes herself as "a first-generation, tomboy Mexican with pretty hair. My parents were auto workers and our Mexican culture was embedded in our everyday life, even when we moved from the East Bay to the Midwest. We were the only Mexican family in our town. That was crazy. Only much later did I realize I had a great place to mine stories." After she started a career in advertising, friends in the television business encouraged her to mine those family stories for material.
