Feel uncomfortable about signing up for the Amtrak Residency program and still want a free ride? You can still write without worrying about what you’re giving away.

We’re giving away an Amtrak long distance roundtrip train ride from NYC to Florida.  You  get to pick either Orlando or Miami.

*Update 3/12/14* if you don’t live in NYC or Florida and still want to participate, we are hoping to add more cities soon!


To enter, just become a free BiblioCrunch member and fill out the application form and enter our RaffleCopter. We’ll review it and let you know whether you’ve won. We’re accepting applications through the end of August 2014 (we’ve extended the deadline).

We want to be absolutely clear that we don’t retain rights to anything  you own. We believe authors should always retain their rights and should always always read the terms for any site/contest they join.

About Miral Sattar

Lover of books. CEO & founder of Bibliocrunch. Love storytelling in all its forms. Formerly TIME. I'm a new media entrepreneur who has worked in the media industry for 11 years. My mission is simple – to innovate the publishing industry with technology. My company has been featured in BBC World News, Money Magazine, Bloomberg, Consumer Reports, Forbes, WSJ, MediaBistro, PBS, Columbia Journalism Review, The Next Web, Publishers Weekly, and a bunch of other places. Bibliocrunch was also selected as The Next Big Thing in media by the Paley Center. I also used to run a popular South Asian culture blog called Divanee. Before I ran my own company and became a mom, I used to be on the board for several literacy organizations, and wrote a LOT more. Hopefully, when things are calmer I can go back to that! :)
