Six-Week Workshop Instructors

The Clarion West Writers Workshop is crafted to provide an intensive and worthwhile experience for every participant. We carefully weigh such factors as prior teaching experience, publication history, demonstrated values, recommendations by students and colleagues, and expressed interest in teaching. Ultimately the instructor selection process is a complex series of deliberations conducted in person by a committee composed of staff, past instructors, and alumni of the Clarion West Writers Workshop. We do not publish the details of our instructor selection process, but anyone who wants to provide a recommendation or who feels that they may be well-suited to teaching for us is encouraged to contact our workshop director.
