Changes for Clarion West in 2020

Dear Clarion West Community, 

We have been working closely with this year’s class and instructors on what options are the best for them individually and as a cohort. With everyone’s safety in mind, we have been discussing a range of options. Our final decision is to push back our schedule and hold this year’s class, with their 2020 instructors, next summer. 

In the meantime, we are making plans for this summer to provide classes, workshops, readings, and other virtual events that will help keep our summer traditions going and our Clarion West community together. We hope to see you virtually, wherever you are. 

This is the first time in the history of Clarion West that we have had to postpone a summer workshop. Please know that this is a big disappointment for all of us. If you have any questions for us in the meantime, please send me an email. 

 If you are looking for ways to support Clarion West, we are participating in GiveBIG 2020, which will be held on May 5–6 this year. We also invite you to join us for our annual Write-a-thon this summer with new activities and offerings to support our writers. 

Wherever you are, stay healthy, and keep writing, reading, and dreaming

Sincerely, 

Marnee Chua
