Clarion San Diego

I made my application to Clarion San Diego yesterday evening. Instructors include Kelly Link, Geoff Ryman and yes that is a picture of Neil Gaiman and yes he is one of the instructors. Clarion is basically Top Gun for science fiction and fantasy writers. Its been running since 1968 and in forty years its alumni include Tobia Buckell, Octavia Butler, Lucius Shepherd, Cort Doctorow, Lisa Tuttle, Bruce Sterling and many many more. They only take 18 students a year and get God knows how many applications so fingers crossed!

The Clarion Foundation are fundraising to secure the future of the workshops and make sure no writer granted a place is unable to attend for financial reasons with generous scholarships. If you are feeling generous make a donation or help spread the word.
