The Amtrak residency program is a strange new program that will provide writers with an inspiring mobile home in which they can write. The program will allow 24 writers to write to their heart's content for two to five days on board one of Amtrak's trains.
Train travel is a lot less popular than it used to be. This is the natural progression of things as many passengers find that if they want to get from point A to point B, it would simply be easier to take a flight. There's something different about travelling on a train however, and being able to see the countryside can be an inspiring travel experience.
The Amtrak residency program will let writers take advantage of the ride while having everything taken care of for their two to five day trip.
