    I attended a Wofford summer program years ago, and I would have KILLED for an opportunity like this. My choices were things like Watercolor and Broadway Musical class.

    As far as SF summer workshops go, I think Clarion is considered the gold standard. You’ve heard of fifty or sixty percent of their graduates (including Doctorow). The app period for 2009 is already closed, though.

    Wow, that’s great!

    My wife runs a non-profit called Writopia Lab, and they do writing workshops for young writers (8 to 18) in NYC, DC, and LA. Not everyone works on SciFi (there’s a lot of memoir, general fiction, and poetry, too), but here’s a SciFi story one Writopia kid wrote: http://writopialab.blogspot.com/2008/03/featured-story-of-day.html

    Are there any programs like this for people of all ages? I would love to attend something similar, especially given that I’m a free-traveling and free-willed adult, but there seems to be no market.
