Applications are open for both the Clarion Writing Workshop at UC San Diego and the Clarion west workshop in Seattle, a pair of legendary, six-week intensive instructional summer workshops for aspiring science fiction and fantasy writers.
I am a graduate of Clarion and volunteer on the board of its foundation and I've taught both workshops in the past -- I'm teaching week six of the Clarion West workshop this year, along with Andy Duncan, Eileen Gunn, Tobias Buckell, Connie Willis and Nalo Hopkinson.
Clarion's instructors this year are Christopher Barzak, Saladin Ahmed, James Patrick Kelly (who was one of my own teachers), Karen Joy Fowler, Maureen McHugh and Margo Lanagan.
