Clarion 2012: be there

You have until March 1 to apply to attend Clarion 2012, which will be held in San Diego from June 24 - August 4, 2012. You will learn from writers Jeffrey Ford, Marjorie Liu, Ted Chiang, Walter Jon Williams, Holly Black and Cassandra Clare.

I attended Clarion 1996. What did I learn? Frankly, nothing that I couldn't have learned alone at home, except that I learned it all a lot faster, better, and in a way impossible to forget: how to get ideas, how to turn them into stories, what a short story does in abstract and specific terms, what the publishing world was like, what I could already do as a writer, and what I needed to improve.

Clarion makes you work hard and think hard. Boot camp.

Where to apply:
