Clarion 2007 was an amazing experience: Six weeks of writing and critiquing in the company of 18 other writers who redefined “excellent writing” for me.

Our instructors were: Greg Frost in Week One; Jeff Vandermeer (and Ann) in Week Two; Karen Joy Fowler in Week Three; Cory Doctorow in Week Four; And Delia Sherman and Ellen Kushner team-teaching Weeks Five and Six.

My notes from Clarion are on my LiveJournal, (they were posted at random intervals between Dec 2007 and March 2008, but linked there.
