From time to time, Clarion West brings together authors and the public for the opportunity to interview prominent writers in both intimate and public settings. When possible, Clarion West teams up with other organizations to make this happen.

Upcoming Events

Summer of Science Fiction & Fantasy Reading Series

Each week during the summer workshop, Clarion West presents one of its six instructors reading their best new work which could include selections from recently published books, unpublished stories, or novels-in-progress. The featured reader also answers questions about writing, teaching, editing, and other topics. Readings are typically held on Tuesday evenings at 7PM Pacific, unless otherwise stated.

Summer Write-a-thon

The Write-a-thon is Clarion West’s six-week-long annual online fundraiser. Participants set public writing goals on their personal Write-a-thon page, then work toward them. Friends and family can pledge donations in support. It’s like a walkathon, but with writing.

The 2024 Write-a-thon will be held June 16-July 27.
