He’s Got a Ticket to Write



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.
