Every summer, Clarion West holds an intensive six-week workshop in Seattle, geared to help you prepare for a professional career as a writer of speculative fiction.
Each workshop is limited to 18 students, and each week features a different instructor, a highly regarded author or editor offering their unique perspective on the field. Short fiction is the workshop’s focus, with an emphasis on science fiction, fantasy, and horror.
Come prepared to write several new stories, to experiment and take artistic risks, and to give and receive constructive criticism. You’ll work closely with instructors in group critiques of newly written stories, discussions about writing techniques or professional concerns, and individual or small group conferences.
