Amtrak Residency For Writers

Monday, March 10, 2014

AMTRAK has just announced their Residency for Writers, which will allow for up to 24 writers to take long-distance trains to work on their projects. It is designed to allow creative professionals who are passionate about train travel and writing to work on their craft in an inspiring environment.
Round-trip train travel will be provided on an Amtrak long-distance route. Each resident will be given a private sleeper car, equipped with a desk, a bed and a window to watch the American countryside roll by for inspiration. Routes will be determined based on availability and will last anywhere from 2-5 days, with exceptions for special projects.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed by a panel. Both emerging and established writers will be considered.

Application deadline: March 31st.
