At least he wants one.
Via The Wire, we learn that, “Amtrak has begun offering “writers’ residencies” to, well, writers – long roundtrip rides aboard Amtrak trains dedicated solely for the purpose of writing.”
Count. Me. In.
Imagine, riding the rail across the country with your laptop and a suitcase plastered with travel stickers.
While the whole concept is in the infancy stage, it’s fascinating. Sure there may be a cost. Even government-subsidized Amtrak can’t give away rides for free.
There are a lot of questions. Who qualifies? Where are the trips? Who pays? How do I apply?
But, seriously, I just added this to the Bucket List.
