Support Clarion Weſt

Clarion West logoThe Clarion West Writers Workshop is an intensive six-week program for writers preparing for professional careers in science fiction and fantasy. It runs yearly late June through the end of July.

The workshop is limited to 18 students per year. Each of the six weeks is instructed by a different professional writer or editor. The roster of guest instructors changes yearly. Instructors have included Neil Gaiman, George R.R. MartinChuck Palahniuk, Ursula K. Le Guin, and many others.

Founded in Seattle, Washington in 1971, the workshop has been held continuously since 1984. Clarion West celebrated its 30th anniversary of continuous instruction in 2013.

Each summer, during the workshop, Clarion West holds a Write-a-thon to raise money in support of its mission. The foundation also accepts donations during the rest of the year.

I graduated from the workshop in 2011, and the experiences I had in Seattle, as well as the friendships I made, have had a lasting impact, both on my writing career and on my life.

Please consider making a donation. Thanks.
