Being a writer-in-residence can take you to some interesting places, a friend of mine once spent a season in the Yukon as one. Philosopher Alain de Botton gets off a little easier he only has to spend one week at Heathrow Airport's Terminal Five. De Botton is the first ever writer-in-residence at a UK airport. The BBC News reports that he will have access to all areas and will write a book about the experience. After the book is written he will give away 10,000 copies. Check out the BBC News video where de Botton refers to the Departures area as the "most romantic" area of the airport.
