@dwiener Under the terms of the agreement, it does take you "out of the running."  How do you expect Amtrak to make use of copyrighted material?  Humm?  (Silly writer.)

@BrandonSeifert Paragraph 6 is a killer for me, too.  If there was no "writing sample" to submit, that may make a difference.  Given that Paragraph 6 takes ownership of that sample is beyond the pale. 

Buh-bye, Amtrak.

Amtrak Writing Resident downs another scotch and water.  Scribbles in notebook.  Tears paper from notebook and crams it in his mouth.
