From “Love Is Never Still:”
|What I Write||
Rachel Swirsky writes fantasy and science fiction with a literary edge.
“Swirsky’s crisp prose and insightful vision draw the reader in, and her work will amply reward both casual reading and close attention.” – Publisher’s Weekly review of How the World Became Quiet
“[Her] fiction shows range and depth, it is intelligent and curious, and while the style is often both muscular and lyrical, that style (and voice) are almost always in the service of character and story.” — Jeff VanderMeer
Rachel Swirsky holds an MFA from the University of Iowa which she completed after graduating from Clarion West in 2005. She’s been nominated for the Hugo Award, Locus Award, World Fantasy Award, and Sturgeon Award, and twice won the Nebula award. Visit her website for her online bibliography.

I will write 100 words of new fiction a day, in addition to my other non-fiction and revision projects.
For the past ten years, I have supported Clarion West with money, volunteer time, and support. The workshop was a major milestone in my development as a writer. I was so fortunate to be able to attend, and I want that experience to be available to new writers, especially ones who need a boost from the scholarships Clarion West helps provide.
