Author Alexander Chee had a great idea, and something really came of it. Apparently, he mentioned in an interview with PEN magazine that he wished Amtrak had a writer-in-residency program, since riding a train seems an ideal way to get creative.

I would definitely do this. I think I could be Amtrak's first photographer in residence, and would be happy to write up a trip across the country, or even up or down one of our coasts.
