Want to write fantasy or science fiction?

Clarion West.

Among the genres, I think that the readers of SF and fantasy have the highest percentage of readers who also dream of being writers.  And look at that lineup of instructors for 2013.  That’s a wonderful spectrum of writers from the full rainbow of SF and fantasy.

I never had the good fortune to be able to attend Clarion.  I think that if I had, I would have achieved success decades earlier.  Perhaps Clarion or Clarion West is right for you?

Clarion and Clarion West are probably the best known writing workshops for people who want a six week boot camp on how to be a writer.
