Amtrak is Doing Something Awesome

So, apparently what started as a casual Twitter conversation (you can find most of it under the hashtag #AmtrakResidency) has turned into the most awesome idea ever.



Basically, Amtrak has created a ‘writing residency’ program, where writers can pay very little (or nothing) to take a cross-country trip via train and do nothing but write.



Seem weird? You’ve probably never written on a train.


You guys. I LOVE TRAINS. Honestly, that was one of my favorite things about the collective year I’ve spent in Europe. Trains. Trains everywhere. They’re cheap and comfortable, way less hassle than flying, and you get to look at all the pretty scenery.
