Clarion West Write-a-thon

Today marks the beginning of another Clarion West write-a-thon. For those of you who don't know, Clarion West (and the 2-3 other Clarion workshops) are six-week intensive courses dedicated to helping promising authors write speculative fiction. Admission is through application, and the workshops are taught by famous authors from the spec fic world.

The write-a-thon is an event that pulls together workshop alumni (around a hundred of us this year) with several goals in mind:

1. Get us energized and writing

2. Provide moral support for those in the program

3. Raise funds for the workshop (the most important part)

I'll be doing the write-a-thon this year (in spite of a hellacious schedule) both in order to get my own writing back on track and to try to raise money for a great cause and community. So please stop by the web site if you're curiuos (or if you want to give):

I'll be doing updates over the next six weeks as the words begin to flow.
