Just the ticket - rail firm begins writers-in-residence programme

The US rail company Amtrak has begun a writers-in-residency programme, offering free or low cost trips for those wanting to use the unique environment created by a train journey to help get inspired. It’s an idea that appeals to Julia Crouch, a British author who wrote a short story while working as a writer-in-residence in the UK.
