One-Day Workshops

Throughout the year, Clarion West invites acclaimed instructors to teach a six-hour class in Seattle’s University District. These intensive single day workshops contain many of the elements of our Six-Week Workshop, such as instructor-facilitated group critique, and discussions about technique or professional concerns. They are available to anyone aged 18 or older for a $150 fee unless otherwise noted.


The Three Ps: Plotting, Planning, and Progress

January 17, 2016 • Mark Teppo • Details and registration

You’ve got a stack of note cards on your wall and maybe even a half-finished manuscript. But you’re also working and have a family and someone needs to walk the dog and…how are you going to find the time to actually finish this book? This workshop will break it all down for you. We’ll show you how to organize yourself so that you can write in between the rest of your daily activities.


How to Read As a Writer

February 21, 2016 • L. Timmel Duchamp  Details and registration

Critiques from a variety of readers give writers insight into how the words they’ve put on the page are being transformed into the stories that unfold in their readers’ heads. This workshop will offer insight into how others are reading your story and help make it into the story you would like them to be reading. Students who enroll in this workshop will be asked to submit a piece of writing in advance.


Clarion West’s One-Day Workshop series is sponsored in part by 4Culture and the National Endowment for the Arts.
