Vonda N. McIntyre Literary Trust

Vonda N. McIntyre passed away in her Seattle home on April 1, 2019, surrounded by friends.

Since founding Clarion West in 1971, Vonda was a continual inspiring presence at the workshop and in the Seattle writing community. She supported generations of Clarion West graduates who benefited from her kindness, intelligence, grace, and wry sense of humor. She was well known among students for her yarn “sea creatures” or “coral brains,” which she crocheted every year for the class as stress relievers.

Clarion West was the recipient of Vonda’s literary assets. Vonda wished that the organization manage her literary copyrights in perpetuity. 

Clarion West has since formed an active rights management committee, including board members Susan Gossman, Tod McCoy, Nisi Shawl, and executive director Marnee Chua.
