Clarion will have the pleasure of:
Jeff and Ann VanderMeer will be the bring it home team for the last two weeks. I’ve just finished reading Delany’s essay on Clarion, I’m so excited for next year.
Clarion West will have the pleasure of:
Clarion West doesn’t do the two week bring it home thing, but still looks freaking awesome.
Oh, how I wish it was possible to do Clarion more than once, I want to do them all. I shall just have to work really really hard and hope, twenty years from now, that I can be an instructor.
Applications for Clarion opens in January, applications for Clarion West open in December. They both run for six weeks, starting in June. I highly recommend it to writers who are serious about story and developing themselves (I know a couple of people who came to Clarion to find out if they were/could be ‘writers’ who have had beneficial experiences). The process of applying in itself is valuable and if you get in… well you’ll have one hell of a ride.
