Announcing the Clarion West Class of 2021

It is with incalculable joy that we present the Clarion West Six-Week Summer Workshop Class of 2021.

This summer, fifteen writers will study with Andy Duncan, Eileen Gunn, Tina Connolly, Caroline Yoachim, Nalo Hopkinson, Sheree Renée Thomas, and Ted Chiang.

Following the postponement of the 2020 workshop due to Covid-19, we are delighted to once again be welcoming new writers into our community this summer. Congratulations, class!
