Clarion West Alumni News for April 2020

Dear friends,

What a month! Since our previous alumni e-newsletter, we launched our new series of free online workshops and sprints. Response was so huge that it overwhelmed our server! We followed up with more online offerings with pay options as well as a lottery for free/scholarship spots. This went much more smoothly.

To reiterate our Executive Director, Marnee Chua: “Clarion West is in a unique position for helping writers while isolated. Our community is filled with folks experienced in teaching and writing at all levels. For more information about current and upcoming online workshops, please email us at” 

Keep an eye on our site and our social media for more announcements of future online workshops!


GiveBig is coming! On May 5 & 6, you have the opportunity to donate to organizations that save and change lives. Will you consider making a donation to Clarion West this year? Click here for more information.
