San Francisco Bay Ferry Artist-In-Residence Proposal
Dear San Francisco Bay Ferry,
By now you surely know about Amtrak and writers, and maybe even know that Detroit has a “Write a House” program that may get underway soon, giving houses to a few deserving writers. Last fall, when I joined the ranks of the unemployed, I started thinking how great it would be to spend a whole day on SF Bay Ferries with my laptop, just working my work, writing poems and stories, and most people said, “Are You Crazy? They Will Throw You Off Hella Fast.”
Well, I suppose I’d be noticed if I only went from Alameda to SF and back again all day long — on one ticket — but maybe you could make me an offer? How far canI travel by Ferry in one day, on your dime? I’d really rather not have to change too often. And if you could throw in some food vouchers, that would be the tops.
Thanks for your consideration.
