Amtrak announced the opening of accepting submissions for its Residency for Writers program. Twenty-four writers will be given tickets to travel, which includes “accommodations on board a sleeper car equipped with a bed, a desk and outlets”, and by implication, time to write, onboard an Amtrak long distance for two-five days.
A lifelong fascination with trains rushed in while filling out the application. A planned opportunity to write, rather than in small chunks here and there, makes this especially appealing.
Updates will be posted.
