You may have heard a bit about the Amtrak Residency Program. Well, here it is! Be sure to read ALL the fine print, please, and decide after that if you'd still like to apply. Some are okay with the possible ownership of their work by Amtrak, others are not.
Any of these catch your fancy? What do you think about the Amtrak residency? Anything to share? Publishing news?
May you find your Muse.
