If you haven’t taken a train beyond the subway, then it’s probably been quite some time since you’ve heard the company name Amtrak in any context. Well, that just changed as the long standing train service is forming a writer’s residencies program where they’d hope to offer select writers a free round trip to write whatever they’re working on.
Their parameters for writers aren’t strict either, so it can be more than just novelists (i.e. something comedy related). There are no places to apply yet, but we’ll keep you updated.
