Many other transportation companies could offer writers residencies:
- Metropolitan Mass Transit (BART, DC Metro, etc)
- Cruise Lines
- Greyhound Bus
People spend a lot of time traveling from one place to another, so the residencies make sense. But many other industries could gain publicity from such programs.
Starbucks, Panera, Cosi, etc
InterContinental, Hilton, Marriott, etc
I think it would be fair to require a writer in residence to write about the company or the industry, and not just anything. This would seem most appropriate for a residency at the Denver Broncos or the Bellagio in Vegas.
Who is eligible for a residency? Possibilities:
- Famous Authors
- Lottery, anyone can win
- Writing Contest, someone judges the winner
Will any of this happen? Will writers residencies become a long-term part of company marketing?
